 Worksheets and Project Sheets Grades K-6

In General: The worksheets and project sheets available on this website are created for grades K-6. The information appropriate for each grade level (typically ages 5-11) has been carefully researched, and the worksheets and project sheets designed using back-to-basics standards for the target grade/age levels.

We recognize that there are variations in students’ understanding of a subject prior to coming into the grade level that emphasizes the particular subject, as well as variations in the speed at which students acquire new knowledge and grasp a lasting understanding of it. Therefore, these work/project sheets can augment your teaching to students in grades 4-6, depending on students’ cognitive level and ability.

More Specifically: The books offered through Lyric Publishing contain big, new words for students in grades K-3.

“When children are given a definition, they read it and quickly return to the story. When given a sentence that is relevant to the story and uses the word in the same context, students interpret it as a puzzle to be solved. They spend more time thinking about the meaning of the word and remember it better a week later.” How Children Learn Words, Miller and Gildea.

Interacting with students within the subject matter of a new word, strengthens the child’s understanding and retention of that new word. For example, the word “carapace” might, at first, be thought of as a synonym for “turtle” or “tortoise”, later on it’s recognized as “part of” a turtle or tortoise, and a little later on, it’s understood to be “the shell” of a turtle or a tortoise.

Reinforce the progression to the full understanding of a new word by creating a bulletin board of the selected book subject (turtles, snakes, rocks, etc.). Write the unfamiliar (or “above-grade-level”) words in thick black marker on white strips of paper and affix them to the board with arrows pointing to a picture-definition of each word. For example, the word carapace, which is the name for the top shell of a turtle or tortoise, can be attached to the board with an arrow pointing to the carapace on a tortoise depicted in a large drawing, photo, or creative representation your students have helped make.
