Having a varied and growing vocabulary gives students an advantage in academics and in life. How can we help kids become curious about words and want to learn more? What are everyday ways to build word learning into instruction? In this session, we'll explore a collection of fun, practical strategies designed to give our students the vocabulary advantage they deserve.

We'll collaborate through frequent opportunities to turn and talk, through written "silent conversations", and through participation in word games and word play.

Gifted competencies include: A, B, C, D, E
