Preschool classrooms offer children opportunities to hear varied and numerous new vocabulary words. However, although preschool teachers know they have a great opportunity to expand children’s vocabulary, it helps to have some guides. Here’s one for vocabulary.
This guide shares how to say commonly used (such as “smart”) in different and meaningful ways (such as “witty”, “brilliant”, and “intelligent”). If you review all 16 words, they are all words that a preschool teacher would use in the classroom. Why not take the opportunity to change it up and teacher the kiddos new ways to describe something? Inspect the graphic below and see how you can expand your teaching vocabulary.
