WORD A DAY: A FUN AND ENGAGING VOCABULARY PROGRAM!
A NEW SCHEDULE WAS SENT HOME WITH THE FIRST PRESENTATION ON NOVEMBER 7.
The first and second grade class have begun a vocabulary program called Word A Day. Here is how it works. Each school day a new word is assigned to one student in the class. He or she will bring home the Word A Day bag containing a notebook, a student dictionary and an index card revealing the chosen word of the day. The child is encouraged to find the word in the student dictionary or on the Internet. Next, he or she will write a "child friendly" meaning of the word and provide a picture in the drawing space of the notebook. This picture can be hand drawn or printed from another source. Also, the child is asked to show and tell" the meaning of the word to the class the following day through the use of a visual, such as a small model of the word, stuffed toy or craft project. Creativity is welcomed!
