This template serves as a mini theme-word wall. Each week, teachers/students discuss new thematic (Tier 2) vocabulary drawn from their reading, recording each word in the quadrant that represents its structure/role. Each question signals a part of speech: (a) What is this? = nouns (quarry, fossil, archaeologist...), (b) What is it like? = adjectives (ferocious, transparent, fragile...), (c) What does it do? = verbs (flutter, grip, leap...), and (d) How does it do this? = adverbs (rapidly, frantically...). The questions provide students with an accessible introduction to language structures/purposes, and facilitates later use (e.g., all actions grouped together for reference during writing).
