Word Integration at Its Best

It’s not just about learning new words but also about using them! Word of the Week encourages students to sprinkle these magical words into their writing, conversation, and even while reading their favorite books. 

We don’t want our students to become passive learners of words. Our goal is to help them weave these new words into the activities and conversations they take part in! It helps them to go from acquiring the vocab to applying it in real-world situations!

Word integration is easy when you use these word integration activities in your daily lessons.

As they become more comfortable, your students (readers, writers, conversationalists) will discover how powerful words can be when expressing themselves. Their confidence and excitement heighten when they uncover one of these words while reading or conversing with someone. They’re like lightbulb moments or ah-ha moments because they can better understand what is being said!

Effortless Integration into Your Busy Schedule
