Building Your Child's Vocabulary

All parents want their child to do well in school. One way to help your child is to help them build their vocabulary. Beginning readers use knowledge about words to help them make sense of what they're reading. The more words a reader knows, the more they are able to comprehend what they're reading or listening to.

Talking to and reading with your child are two terrific ways to help them hear and read new words. Conversations and questions about interesting words ("The book says, 'The boy tumbled down the hill,' and look at the picture? How do you think he went down the hill?) are easy, non-threatening ways to get new words into everyday talk.

Sharing a new word with your child doesn't have to take a long time: just a few minutes to talk about the word and then focus back on the book or conversation. Choose which words to talk about carefully, choosing every new word might make reading seem like a chore. The best words to explore with your child are ones that are common among adult speakers but are less common to see in the books your child might read.

When introducing new words to your young learner, keep the following four helpful hints in mind:

1. First, provide a simple, kid-friendly definition for the new word:

Enormous means that something is really, really big

2. Second, provide a simple, kid-friendly example that makes sense within their daily life:

Remember that really big watermelon we got at the grocery store? That was an

enormous watermelon!

3. Third, encourage your child to develop their own example:

What enormous thing can you think of? Can you think of something really big that you

saw today? That's right? The bulldozer near the park was enormous! Those tires were


4. Last, keep your new words active within your house. Over the next few days and weeks, take advantage of opportunities to use each new vocabulary work in conversation.

Take time to share new words and build your child's vocabulary. You'll be enormously glad you did!

Dental News

National Children's Dental Health Month focuses on Sealants!

Remember to "Brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste, clean between your teeth and brush your tongue, for a healthy smile." See your dentist for regular dental checkups!

Irene Hilton, D.D.S., chair of the ADA Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention's advisory committee on dental sealants, said sealants are an equitable way to prevent cavities. "Sealants on permanent molars reduce the risk of cavities by 80%", Dr. Hilton said. If your dentist recommends dental sealants, it is part of a comprehensive cavity management approach.

Reminder: Parents or Legal Guardians: Please remember the state of PA requires that students receive a dental exam upon entering first grade, entering third grade, and upon entering seventh grade. This exam must be completed within one year before the start of school. Any exam done after August 23, 2020 will meet the requirements. If you do not have a dentist, a school dental screening done by the School Dental Hygienist will meet state requirements. Click on the link below to access the dental form.

Transportation News

Transportation for the 2021/2022 school year

There are times when we are asked if a new stop can be made. This type of request may take a minimum of two weeks to coordinate and process the information (weather permitting). Such requests would require us to go out and look at a house location to make a better determination if the request can or cannot be done. We ask if you would help us locate you easier, by ensuring your address is clearly posted, and no less than 3 inches tall and visible from both directions and not obstructed from trees, shrubs etc.

Please remind your student(s) of proper bus stop behavior by standing at the stop, and not playing games or horsing around and not going onto or disturbing someone else’s property.

Also, please remind your student(s) there are several bus rules and one of them are that there is NO food nor drink permitted on the school bus. There is the potential for another student to have an allergic reaction to that item. The newest rule that MUST be followed is to wear your face covering at all times while on the bus and to stay in the seat that has been assigned to you.

Inclement Weather

The new notifications system will follow the districts guidelines that are sent out via Skyward and will also be updated via the districts web page at; Twitter: @rlschools and Facebook: Red Lion Area School District. Please ensure your contact information is updated in Skyward.
