Academic Vocabulary List for Multi-grade Classes

In our district, we have created Academic Vocabulary lists for all single grades and all multi-grade combinations: In English: 1st/2nd, 2nd/3rd, 3rd/4th, and 5th/6th.  And in Spanish: 1st/2nd, 2nd,/3rd, 3rd/4th, and 5th/6th. I wanted to share these lists with you because I remember how frustrated our multi-grade teachers were when they thought they had to teach the complete vocabulary lists for BOTH grade levels that they were teaching. The task was overwhelming. Therefore we developed these lists to support them.


  1. I had a feeling that you were in U-46 based on your About Me section! When I was at NIU, I did one of my clinicals at Ridge Circle in a third grade classroom.

    Anyway, thanks so much for posting these. I want to implement academic vocabulary next year for my students, and I also was trying to figure out which list I should do. This will be so helpful!

    Magnificent Multiagers!

  2. Dear Jill,
    Each grade level has about 125 words to cover during the school year. That's why multi-grade teachers were so frustrated... they thought they now had 250 words to cover. That's impossible, and it added to the stress of teaching a multi-grade class. I'm glad that the list will be helpful to you. Here's a link to the "How well do I know the word form"
