WOW! Words of the Week

Big picture
Words of the Week is a fun way for the Fremont community to help our students' vocabulary SOAR! Each week we will post a MATH and ELA vocab word that may appear in our informal and formal state assessments. Our hope is that staff, families and students will find fun and engaging ways to learn these terms! You could: Play a word game in the car! Keep a running list of the words! Hang them on the bathroom mirror! Sing them! Create a word scavenger hunt!

Here are this week's words:

Congruent: identical in form; coinciding exactly when superimposed.

Capitalization: the action of writing or printing in capital letters or with an initial capital.
