Giving the Gift of Words

There is no gift more meaningful than rich vocabulary. No matter what words you decide to focus on in your classroom, it will help your students to strengthen their reading, writing and conversations. It’s time to buckle back down and think about your vocabulary curriculum.

Have students made process since September? Are they remembering the words that you taught in fall? If you have a good thing going, and just need some new and fresh ideas, you’ve come to the right place!

If you haven’t started yet, it’s never too late. Check out my Words To Teach and Daily Vocab Activities page to get ideas for some introductory lessons! Or, maybe you need some great picture books to kick off your vocabulary instruction? Check out my Connecting with Characters post.
