Vocabulary

Vocabulary plays an important role in your child's life as a reader. Preview challenging vocabulary before independent reading. As your child comes across new and difficult words, create flash cards. These can be study tools that help build a strong vocabulary. Make it fun and give him mini-quizzes with the flash cards. See how fast he can recall the definitions of the words, and challenge him to use the words in original sentences!
Vocabulary is an integral part of your students' success as readers! Use different strategies to support your students as they add new words to their vocabularies. Continue your study of homophones, and teach your students to use flash cards to study definitions. Get your students fired up about learning new words by making it fun! Choose a few vocabulary words each week from relevant text or content for the whole class. Create flash cards, play games, and give your students mini-quizzes on the new words. Repetition is key when learning new vocabulary words.
