Our standards-based bulletin board this month features vocabulary. We work on six words every three weeks that come from a favorite read aloud. The goal is that the students recognize the words as part of their listening vocabulary but we also encourage the students to use the words in their daily conversation... and we reinforce them when they do! But we push one step farther and encourage them to use the words in their writing. This month's bulletin board shows four different students who used words that we have studied in their writing. Way to go Ella, Tiffany, Adrian, and Sophia!
We feel sure that once the students are able to use the words in writing that they are part of the student's vocabulary! Woo hoo!
