Vocabulary Notebooking Pages


These free printables are really graphic organizers to use with the study of new vocabulary words or roots. I designed these to be used with grades four and above. These will work with any vocabulary program or any words that you come across and want to study in more depth.

There is room for these facts about your selected word:

  • meaning
  • example phrases or sentence — write your own for maximum learning benefit
  • picture or cartoon to illustrate the word
  • a breakdown of prefix, root, and suffix — fill in as applicable
  • other forms of the word — adjective, noun, verb, or adverb forms
  • synonyms
  • antonyms
  • part of speech

This layout focuses on a single root. This page has room for

  • what language it comes from, usually Greek or Latin
  • its meaning
  • an icon or symbol that represents the meaning (get creative)
  • example words using the root (I recommend you highlight the root in each example word.)

As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.

Jimmie is now a veteran homeschool mom. Her daughter Emma is a student of the sciences at a large university in Illinois. Her guide to notebooking—Notebooking Success—guides you through notebooking: what it is; how to use it; how it fits a Charlotte Mason, classical, and textbook curriculum; tips for getting the most educational value from it; and much more. It comes bundled with several bonuses, including a small set of generic notebooking pages that can be used with any topic.

This worksheet is awesome! I homeschool my hi func autistic 13 yr old and we are using your sheet (the top one pictured here) daily! He reads outloud (right now from a DK volcano book) and when he gets to a word he does not know, he writes it on your sheet. When he gets to 4 words, he stops and looks in the dictionary to fill out the vocabulary sheet. If we are out and about he uses Spellingcity.com (on my phone).

I just wanted to share how we use this sheet and say thanks for making it!!

    I am so encouraged that you’ve found the page helpful. And I also appreciate your getting specific with how you use it. That is sure to help other moms.

This is a great sheet. What would you suggest if you have a list of 15 spelling/vocab words?

Trish Reply

I have the same thought as the other Tricia 🙂 I was thinking of printing the template on 5×8 index cards and giving each kid a bag or ring. We use Wordly Wise and take two weeks to go through each 15-word section. I was thinking we’d do the cards during Daily 5 – kids decide how many to do per day, as long as all are done by the 2nd Friday…

It’s a great template – I’m looking forward to using it with my 4th graders!

I am wondering if I could use this with my first grader? Well, my son is in kindergarden but he is doing first grade work. He loves learning about new words and I am wondering if this would be ok to use with him in our homeschool?
