Vocabulary Day


Vocabulary Day is held on the last day of October and everyone shows us a word!

During the month of October, the library offers lots of ways for kids to collect words using dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedia articles, and stories.

Students are reading a "word of the day" at morning announcements each day!

We post great word ideas on a library bulletin board.  The library staff provides each class with a headband that can be decorated to show what a specific word means--the word MUST be on the headband.  Kids can add a costume to this headband and really get into  the word challenge! 

Kids can dress as any word, but some classes choose themes, such as
  • science words
  • math words
  • seasonal words
  • words from a book they are reading
  • Ms. DePaoli gives out special treats for music words.
We have found that nouns are the easiest! 

A photographer roams the building to capture all our great costumes.
