Teaching Vocabulary

Concept Circles are an effective tool you can add to your literacy toolbox.  C.O.D.E. suggests we ask students to delve deeply into new word learning and Concept Circles can offer that kind of deep learning.

Here is a link with info explaining this strategy and also will find the PDF for CC's on this link.  I've included a file to download on HGS Announcements.   I plan to use this weekly for words students will be collecting on Vocabulary Bookmarks and adding to their personal Word Walls.


  1. Jacquie when I click on the link I am not able to get to the graphic organizer or instructions.

  2. Hi Valerie. I checked the link on both my post and the one for the PDF which is embedded in the article...both seem to work okay. I'll stop by and see if I can figure out what might be the problemo.
