Building your child's vocabulary...

Building vocabulary can be fun and exciting!

Students love to learn new words, and it is very exciting when they are acknowledged for using their smart words. Remember to speak to your child with rich vocabulary. When children hear a word they do not understand, they are likely to ask what the word means. This provides a great opportunity for discussion and word meaning in context.


Consider starting a "Smart Word Journal" with your child. As your child learns a new word, have them write the word in the journal and make a connection to the word. The connection can be to draw a picture, write a sentence with the word, or write the meaning in their own words.
