    Here's the plan:

    • Kick Off - March 1st, please view our Power Point explaining our plans for the month and for the parade.
    • During the month, kids can do different activities with words:
      • Read interesting books
      • Complete the Vocabulary Calendar Activities
      • Fill out the Vocabulary Work Collection Journals - coming to classrooms
      • Try some Miss Alaineus activities from Debra Frasier's website
      • Do and create Mad Libs
      • Play word games
      • Participate in our Book Swap
      • And more!
    • Vocabulary Parade - On March 29th we will have a school-wide Vocabulary Parade. For this, students will have to select an interesting word and dress up as that word. We will send home more guidelines soon!
