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 am a fourth and fifth grade literacy teacher in Essex Junction, Vermont. I have just completed my masters degree at Saint Michael’s College with a focus on literacy. For the past year I have 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!
Please join me along this journey and follow my blog!
