Organized by grade level (1–6), each Common Core Academic Vocabulary list contains a collection of CCSS, grade-appropriate words that are critical to understanding the concepts and content being taught in today’s classrooms and encountered in more complex texts. Teachers can select words from these lists to create a variety of customized lessons that address, support, and implement the teaching of general academic vocabulary.
