Do you struggle with new and fun ways to introduce vocabulary? Here is a fantastic way to get your students TALKING about new vocabulary and making meaningful connections to new words. These vocabulary talks were designed to be used with Kindergarten Unit 6 Amazing Words from Reading Street.
What is a vocabulary talk?
Students work in small groups and discuss the pictures on the cards. The whole group comes back together and each group can share what they thought of each picture. Using this discussion as a springboard the teacher will introduce the new vocabulary word.
This set includes cards with pictures, words, and example sentences as well as 6 Powerpoint presentations that includes the pictures for each word. You can use these presentations to do this activity whole group or to refer to after the students talk about the cards.
These vocabulary talks are ideal to use with the following stories and align with Reading Street (2011) Amazing Words:
Building with Dad
Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop
Alistair and Kip's Great Adventure
The House That Tony Lives In
Ants and Their Nests
