Although vocabulary is included in the BIG 5 areas of reading, it is often neglected and undervalued. This PD presented by Harmony # 175 Instructional Coach Cindy Hettenhausen will focus on the importance vocabulary instruction plays in the areas of reading, writing and speaking development. The attendees will leave with skills and strategies that will not only enhance their students’ vocabulary skills but will provide students with the ability to look at words inquisitively and become authentic articulate writers and speakers. In addition, you will be introduced to a variety of enriching literature that can be used to strengthen and support vocabulary instruction. Finally, the attendees will leave with a multitude of effective vocabulary activities that can be incorporated easily and quickly into your daily curriculum.
