Vocabulary

  • In order for students to build and strengthen their vocabularies, they need repeated exposure to words in a variety of contexts . How students get that exposure is largely through reading—EVERY day. The impact of spending a few extra minutes per day reading can be startling over the long term. You can read to them or with them. When you finish a book or chapter, ask them questions about what they read. You can even have them answer these question stems by writing the answers.

    Stems for Instruction

    Reading strategies (Spanish)

    Another way to help strengthen your child's  writing is to keep a journal. Encourage your child to write about what they do each day or be creative and write a make believe story.
