Math Vocabulary from Spelling City

One factor for many students not passing state assessments in mathematics is the lack of understanding math vocabulary. Spelling City, a web resource used by many area teachers, has released grade level math vocabulary lists.

Each grade level has several lists, and each list contains approximately 10 terms, which can be used with spelling or vocabulary practice activities available on the site. Simply open a list and choose from Spelling Test, Vocabulary Test, Teach Me, Play a Game, Worksheets, and Print the List. If you choose a game there are several available to play, or print out and have students complete offline. Some of these games also make for great interactive whiteboard activities.

This can be a very good supplemental site offered to students that need additional preparation.
