It is so important for students to be exposed to a wide range of words so that they can master expressing themselves both orally and through writing. Sometimes, it is not enough for students to read often, but you really have to carefully select the right books that would introduce appropriate vocabulary in context for the reader. I've selected this group of books just for this purpose. These particular books are also helpful for teaching about poetry in terms of word choices and the emotional value of different words. Feel free to check them out or add your own choices into the comments section under this post and I'll be happy to check those out myself.
- Teacher Nyla
- As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
