It is so important to teach our children vocabulary. Learn come simple, meaningful ways to introduce new vocabulary words to your kids in first grade and second grade. Words build knowledge base and it is essential for them to articulate themselves as much as possible. I tell you this because I grew up in the Bronx, New York. I hardly went to school, let alone read a full book. When I became an adult, I felt as though I wasn’t ever going to be as smart as other people. Gratefully, when Christ saved my soul, I gained some confidence. I also realized that I could learn as much as I wanted. I could be smart as well, because He said all things were possible for those who love Him. Learning to communicate with a rich vocabulary will no doubt be beneficial for your children, as they become adults. This systemic approach to teaching vocabulary will provide a great head start.
