For this batch of word of the day vocabulary, I decided to use value words (more word of the day lists to come!) I think value words are so important because it teaches students to be aware of their actions and intentions. For example, some of the words include respect, responsibility, and motivation. In a classroom setting you may introduce the word respect. The teacher can ask the class what they think respect means, and the teacher can also provide examples of respectful behavior. This way, students are more likely to remember the vocabulary word and put it into practice.
TIP: when students are displaying one of these values...positively reinforce them for their efforts. For example, a teacher may say, "Thank you for cleaning up your desk, that is very respectful!"
