ELKINS VOCABULARY PROGRAM

WORDS OF THE WEEK

We will have 6 words to learn over a 2 week period. Every teacher will hang the word for their grade level in their room.


Each grade level will be responsible for 1 of the 6 words.

For Example: Kinder has the word ENGAGE

The first week in class, they will hang the word in their room and discuss the definition, use it in a sentences, and work to understand it completely.

These Examples would be:

  1. Use an iPad to make a video (Link a QR Code to Video)

  3. Talk about the word on the announcements

WORD UP LEVELS!

All students will start as rookies and all students will have a chance to move up as many levels as they would like. Spirit Tags (that PTA is selling) will be used for levels 2 thru 5 and when a student reaches level 2 thru 5 they will receive a spirit tag for that level from the principal.


Teachers will nominate students to move up through the levels.


A poster will be available that shows what constitutes a student moving up through the levels. When you notice the student using the word, whether in writing and/or in speaking, you can have the student move up to the next level.
