Every week we have a book focus where we learn new vocabulary words and discuss the meaning of each word.
Teaching vocabulary skills is important to help children express themselves clearly and meaningfully in written and spoken formats.
We were so impressed that our story matched the current celebration of Chinese New Year! We enjoyed listening to our class mates talk about how they celebrated Chinese New Year with their families.

Here are some of our sentences using the vocabulary words ferocious, groan and sprinkle.
