Informal - Formal Vocabulary - Phrasal Verbs & Academic Vocabulary

Hi everyone,
I wanted to share with you my latest product for teaching vocabulary:

Informal and Formal Vocabulary - Phrasal Verbs & the corresponding Academic Vocabulary

You say put off,
We say postpone,
You say call up,
We say phone.

Meet Common Core standards and raise the vocabulary level of your students with this 102-page unit on Informal and Formal Vocabulary - Phrasal Verbs & the corresponding Academic Vocabulary.
This unit covers 32 different Phrasal Verbs and the Academic vocabulary that corresponds with each one. Phrasal verbs are verbs that contain more than one word and there are hundreds of English Phrasal Verbs such as: think over (consider), set up (establish), and put up with (tolerate).

This comprehensive unit contains color and black & white word wall cards, game cards, activities, a song and games based on phrasal verbs and their academic language equivalents.

Reproducible black lines included in this package:

• 32 Phrasal Verb word wall cards
• 32 Academic Vocabulary word wall cards
• Game cards and board
• Song lyrics
• Assessments
• Lesson plans and activities

Word cards are reproducible in color or print in black and white.

Since Phrasal Verbs are very common in oral English, their understanding is essential for communication and reading comprehension. However, when writing formally there are two reasons we strive to use the academic or formal equivalents of Phrasal Verbs. First, Phrasal Verbs are highly idiomatic. Formal writing uses Standard English and avoids figurative language and slang. Secondly, when writing formally in English precise vocabulary is expected. Since Phrasal Verbs often have multiple meanings they can be difficult to understand and impede the meaning. Teaching your students the Academic vocabulary for Phrasal Verbs will enlarge their vocabulary and improve their formal English writing!
