Vocabulary Skits are a great way to learn new vocabulary. This activity asks students to use new vocabulary in context which helps them remember the meaning of the words they are learning. After each skit, students in the classroom have an opportunity to evaluate if the group represented the word accurately. They must use examples from the skit to support their evaluations.

This activity can be used to teach a wide range of vocabulary words. Learning new words is just one benefit. In order to create the skits, students need to collaborate, write, and listen to each other's ideas. All minds are active with Vocabulary Skits.

Literacy Standards In Action

We've mapped our literacy lessons and reading, speaking, and writing skills to state standards, Common Core, and NGSS. The standards are "the what" to teach. Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
