What is a vocabulary talk?
A vocabulary talk is an activity to get your students talking about new vocabulary they may encounter in an upcoming story. By using real pictures, words, and student friendly sentences students can learn new words in a fun and interactive way. Students in a small group setting start with a picture, discuss what they notice, any connections they may have to the picture, and think of words to go with the picture. As a whole group the class will match up words with pictures. This is especially helpful for English language learners!
These vocabulary talks are ideal to use with the following stories:
The Little School Bus by Pamala Paparone
We Are So Proud by Donna Longo
Plaidypus Lost by Janet Stevens
Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip with Kindergarten by Joseph Slate
Smash! Crash! by Jon Scieszka
Dig, Dig, Digging by Margaret Mayo
