School Wide Vocabulary Focus

describeOne of our School Improvement goals is VOCABULARY:  Deliver consistent common vocabulary instruction in grades K-5.  Each child’s vocabulary size in early grades is a predictor of the reading success in later grades.  This year we will teach 28 key VERBS – one per week.  

Our first word is DESCRIBE: to tell in your own words.  In addition, we will expand the meaning of this word by teaching synonyms such as portray, tell, explain and report.

Each word will have a song that helps with word knowledge and memorization.  Our song for DESCRIBE.  Credit to Mr. Scott Barry, producer of this music.
