Vocabulary in the K-5 SEI Classroom
This foundations workshop will focus on building teacher knowledge and skills for explicit vocabulary instruction for ELLs while also developing a personal awareness to academic register. Participants will understand the components of a vocabulary plan/routine and the connection to reading. Children at this age readily learn words from books read to them and books they read, as well as from the rich conversations about these texts. A critical component of vocabulary development is building rich and flexible word knowledge. This training will demonstrate best practices for instruction using ELP Standards from identifying meaning and usage of high frequency words to grade specific academic vocabulary. Participants will receive a vocabulary resource entitled: Teaching Vocabulary to English Language Learners by Michael F. Graves, Diane August, and Jeannete Mancilla-Martinez.
