The K.I.M.S. Strategy is a great way to work on vocabulary skills in any grade level and any subject area!
K- Key Word: This is where you place the vocabulary word
I - Information: definition of word
M- Memory Clue: A picture that helps you remember the definition of the Key Word
S- Statement: A sentence using the key word (I relate it to the memory clue).
