Effective Vocabulary Instruction K- 2nd Grade Gina Flynn and Bethany Teipel St. Robert School October 8, 2013 Getting Started Think of your kiddos... Bursts out without raising hand

Just cant resist touching, poking, bothering Thinks hes smarter than you Impact of CCSS The Common Core State Standards place a great deal of emphasis on academic vocabulary. The CCSS also calls for increasing the amount of

nonfiction and informational text in classrooms. Vocabulary knowledge influences fluency, comprehension, and student achievement Video: http://www.engageny.org/resource/common-core- in-ela-literacy-shift-6-academic-vocabulary Three Vocabulary Tiers

Tier 1: Known and Common Words Tier I words are basic, everyday words that are a part of most childrens vocabulary. These are words used every day in conversation, and most of them are learned by hearing family, peers, and teachers use them when speaking. These words are especially important for

English language learners who may not be familiar with them. Tier 2: High Frequency Words Tier 2 words include frequently occurring words that appear in various contexts and topics and play an important role in verbal functioning across a variety of content

areas. Another way to think of Tier 2 vocabulary is as cross-curricular terms. For example, the term justify and predict frequently appear in Science, Social Studies, and English texts. Tier 3: Low Frequency, Domain Specific Tier 3 words are field of study specific

vocabulary. Words in this category are low frequency, specialized words that appear in specific fields or content areas. Most students will be unfamiliar with Tier 3 words. Teach these words as the need arises for comprehension in specific content areas. Vocabulary in Early

Literacy Vocabulary plays an important role in understanding nonfiction and informational text. It has been estimated that 80% of comprehension in nonfiction is dependent upon understanding the vocabulary. Teaching vocabulary improves both verbal IQ and reading comprehension. Children who are behind by 1st grade have a hard time

making up the gap. If children read 1 million words in a year, at least 1,000 words will be added to their vocabulary (Krashen, 1993 Vocabulary Instruction Offer opportunities to use newly learned word Take 1 minute to write down ways you teach vocabulary in your

classroom Four Kinds of Vocabulary Listening: The words we need to know to understand what we hear Speaking: The words we use when we speak Reading: The words we need to know

when we read Writing: The words we use in writing All are interconnected How to Teach Vocabulary Research shows students will incorporate more words into their vocabulary and use them correctly, including spelling, when the

focus is on fewer words at one time for intensive instruction Grades 2-5 5-8 words per week Grades 6-8 10-15 words per week

Grades 9-12 12-25 words per week Brewer, C and Gann, J. (2003). Balanced literacy: a learning focused approach. Boone NC: Learning Concepts..
