Word of the Week is back, and I want to make it BIGGER and BETTER than ever. The size of one's vocabulary is so important and really impacts all aspects of their learning. We need a good vocabulary to read and to comprehend what we're reading, to write, to have social interactions with others, etc. The more vocabulary terms a child has, the more access they have to new vocabulary by using related words, context clues, etc. Kids are learning new vocabulary all throughout their school day and we want to help them hold onto these new terms by modeling use of these terms. I hope to post the speech room's Word of the Week each week so that you can discuss the vocabulary word with your child at home.
Our first word of the year is ANTICIPATE
