This seventh grade vocabulary list was built from an analysis of difficult words that appear in basal readers and other books commonly taught in the seventh grade. These spelling words can be challenging but they set the foundation for a more expanded academic vocabulary for intermediate grades (6-8).

In seventh grade, students are expected to:

Increase word usage and knowledge.
Discuss books, articles, and short stories.
Analyze and clarify language.
In order to help you do that in your classroom, use these sheets that will:

encourage students to use context clues
grow vocabulary
enhance spelling
produce better readers
increase new word usage
By the end of the year, seventh graders should demonstrate an understanding of text and word meaning, integrate knowledge and ideas, and read and comprehend literature. In order to do that, we must encourage them to use BIGGER words in their vocabulary.

An example of this would be instead of saying on-time students are encouraged to say punctual or find other synonyms. These sheets will expand their field of view mentally of other words that can better get the point across in every day conversations.
