Word Power Vocabulary Initiative
We are officially kicking off our WORD Power Vocabulary Initiative this year to increase student achievement on STAAR and Stanford/Aprenda. The Word Power Rangers are scheduled to visit our boys and girls each month to pump them up to learn vocabulary. Students learn words by grade level each week, and the words are reinforced in their ancillary classes.
Students have the opportunity to earn prizes from the Word Power Rangers and Mrs.Chenier by creating sentences that demonstrate they know the meaning for the word and submitting them to Ms. Meggs when they go to the library each week. The sentences are entered in a drawing, and one student from each grade level wins a prize each month.
The following websites can be used at home for students to pump up their vocabulary.
The words for each week can be found under the 'Parents & Students' tab in this site.
