Back to Basics: Vocabulary Picture Cards
Published: September 19, 2016
Vocabulary Picture Cards are a foundational part of GrapeSEED. With 50-70 cards in each Unit, a contextual theme emerges allowing your students to build confidence and flexibility across materials through shared vocabulary. Presenting the words in isolation prior to putting them in the larger context of a story or song builds comprehension as well as proper pronunciation.
Did you know the vocabulary card for “bird” could go with six different materials in Unit 1? Make sure your vocabulary cards are always sorted and assigned to the proper material with no more than ten cards for each. To help build further flexibility, try reassigning vocabulary cards every couple of weeks.
