I think vocabulary development is one of the key, core skills that helps a child to be successful. The more words you know, the more you can read, the better you can write, the more efficiently you can communicate.

I’m not a big believer in ‘looking it up’ as a way to learn vocabulary. Instead I tell kids what a word means and then help them to anchor the new term into their lexicon by attaching that new word to existing knowledge and personal experience.

These pages are meant to provide opportunities for this kind of learning. Give the students new words, give them an ‘easy’ definition, and then help them to think of someone they know who embodies that term, some situation they were in that left them feeling that way, some character from books or movies who fits the shoe.... etc.
