Vocabulary Development During Read Alouds: Primary Practices

Reading aloud is a common practice in primary classrooms and is viewed as an important vehicle for vocabulary development. Read alouds are complex instructional interactions in which teachers choose texts, identify words for instruction, and select the appropriate strategies to facilitate word learning. This study explored the complexities by examining the read aloud practices of four primary teachers through observations and interviews.

Chapter 6 in Classrooms That Work describes a variety of different strategies educators can use to support children's vocabulary knowledge. One of the strategies I enjoyed learning about included a read-aloud. Educators are encouraged to skim read-alouds and identify 3 to 5 words children may have a hard time understanding. After the read-aloud is complete educators can do different activities, such as small group dramatizations to define the words.

The vocabulary chapter (29-39) effectively describes the vocabulary subtypes. The vocabularies identified range from speaking to writing and can appear vastly different. A student can have an expansive speaking vocabulary, whereas the words they include in their writing are repetitive. I believe it is crucial for educators to be aware of the subtypes because they can influence instruction. Children with deficits in their writing vocabulary may benefit from personal dictionaries.

I believe this chart from, Sheila Chung, can be effectively used during a lesson that explicitly focuses on vocabulary. Moreover, this resource can be beneficial for ELLs, because students are encouraged to write a translation for the word from their primary language. Students should also write a sentence with the word to understand how to use it. This chart can be completed independently or in small groups.

I believe the thesaurus rings described in the better than good video can significantly enhance students writing vocabulary. Each thesaurus ring can contain a specific adjective, that students can find synonyms for. Before incorporating a word on a ring, however, it is important that the educator ensures each student knows its definition and how to use it. Furthermore, I believe this resource can help all students throughout the elementary grades. Elementary Schools, Vocabulary, Students, Writing, Education, Words, Rings, Primary School, Ring

Dual-language dictionaries can be an effective tool to enhance a child's English vocabulary, because it allows them to use their first language. Toronto is a multicultural city, therefore, educators should be aware of the range of resources that are available to support English Language Learners. This particular dictionary is more appropriate for junior and intermediate students. Picture dictionaries, either online or hard copy may be more appropriate for elementary students.

Vocabulary Vine: Understanding the Meaning of Words --more than word wall Vocabulary Wall, Word Meaning, Math Class, More Than Words, Virtual Tour, Elementary Schools, Vines, Meant To Be, Homeschool

This video described a strategy educators can use to create a vocabulary wall in their classroom. I liked this strategy because it can be adapted into any classroom. I also believe the educator has constructed a vocabulary resource that is beneficial to all students. The words that are included on the wall are important to the children because they are from their levelled readers.

I believe a vocabulary self-assessment chart can be an effective tool to evaluate students' reading and writing vocabulary knowledge. I would utilize this tool with older elementary students because I believe they can be more self-reflective. This chart would also allow educators to develop lessons that include more explicit vocabulary instruction.
