Vocabulary Building

In a effort to increase my students' vocabulary, I'm going to start using VocabAhead.  This site has cute videos for each word.  It reminds me of the vocabulary book I used a few (many) years ago that had a cartoon for each word.  This activity will be a writing must, one day a week...write the word, definition, sentence, and drawing!!  AND a high five if I hear them using it in their daily conversations.

I find my lower reading students with no reading stamina and very poor vocabulary. 


  1. Great app I just downloaded for my students to access in our word work center next week! Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a great site! Thanks for sharing.
