Reflection: Relevance Elmer and Wilbur - Section 1: Warm Up


Learning new vocabulary is important to CCSS.  Our students need to hear and use new vocabulary.  They need to understand how to use it and how it is relevant to them.  I spent a lot of time on vocabulary.  This book would have had several parts that didn't make sense to my five year olds if I didn't spend time on the new vocabulary.  My ELL students have a difficult time with everyday vocabulary, big words are even more difficult.  The more we use big words, the bigger our personal vocabularies become. The better speaker and writer we can become.
