Foundation Fundamentals: Vocabulary Picture Cards!

Published: September 01, 2017

Tonya wants to remind you that 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 components 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. To help build further flexibility, try reassigning vocabulary cards every couple of weeks. Remember, many vocabulary cards can intentionally be matched with several different components! Did you know the vocabulary card for “bird” could go with six different components in Unit 1? Make sure your vocabulary cards are always sorted and assigned to the proper component with no more than ten cards for each.
