Can You Say That Word?

We introduce new vocabulary words to our students all the time.  We stop reading a story to define a word.  We introduce new words when we study foreign countries.  New vocabulary is introduced when we are doing science experiments and creating art.  Why is building your child's vocabulary important?  There are links to vocabulary and reading skills.  For more info on reading, kindergarten and vocabulary---
