2nd Quarter | Middle School Vocabulary Words and Word Work | Nine Weeks



Are you looking for vocabulary words for the 2nd quarter in your middle school classroom? Then this resource is perfect for you! Check out my FREE SAMPLE for one week of middle school vocab, ready to print and use immediately.

Included in the unit is six new vocabulary words every week. As you work your way through weeks 1 through 9, you will begin to notice a pattern! The words on these lists are all synonyms. In the second quarter, Word 1 will always be a synonym for awake. Word 2 will always be a synonym for tired. The goal for this type of list is that students will start to notice patterns between words and vary their vocabulary appropriately (ie: instead of saying tired, they may say drained!). This is a purposeful and strategic way to weave in synonyms, the subtleties between synonyms and antonyms, and new words for student writing.

Included in this unit:

  • Printable weekly word lists
  • Discussion questions for new words
  • Worksheets for students to document their weekly words
  • A weekly vocabulary puzzle
  • Weekly vocabulary homework
  • 3 Pages of vocabulary word work each week
  • A weekly vocabulary assessment and
  • A vocabulary assessment rubric
  • Student samples for you to view
  • A cumulative project for students to finish after nine weeks
  • A cumulative project rubric

These vocabulary units are perfect for prepping students for the SATs, State Tests, and life!
