The Top 5 Things any teacher should know about teaching vocabulary

  1. Use pictures and illustrations to introduce students to new words.
  2. You are not going to be able to teach all the words, so teach how words work.
  3. Expose students to a variety of texts and topics.
  4. Use word families! Allow students to make connections between words.
  5. Do not give out a list with words and definitions. Help students make meaning or words in context.
