Welcome to Vocabulicious!

Welcome to Vocabulicious! This is a blog by teachers for teachers. Posts will be focused around creating a Word Conscious environment in classrooms all over the country. Teachers K-12 will be able to learn, connect and share new ideas relating to vocabulary lessons and activities.

About the author: My name Liz Siracusa and I started my career in education as a fourth and fifth grade literacy teacher in Vermont. After completing my masters degree in literacy education, I transitioned into the word of Educational Technology as an Instructional Coach. While writing my masters thesis, I conducted an active research project to implement a vocabulary program in my classroom. This work helped my students and I become more conscious of the words around us. I was always so intimidated when deciding which words to teach students each school year. How does one decide with 88,500 words in the English language? There is a way to make teaching vocabulary manageable and fun!

The more colleagues I consulted about my research, the more I realized that vocabulary instruction is essential, but often something that gets pushed to the wayside due to other classroom demands. So, I decided to use my research and expertise to create low investment, high return vocabulary resources for us busy teachers!
