Use a Vocabulary Column!



Weekly Teaching Tip: Keep a non-erasable vocabulary column on the side of the whiteboard and add to it throughout the lesson. This column is for vocabulary that comes up naturally and not the specific words you are teaching that day. If the column is full, you have tried to teach too much. This helps you limit the amount of new and unplanned vocabulary that you will teach per day because students can only take in so much information in one class! Be sure to indicate the part of speech and have the students make a sentence using the words so you can assess that they are able to use them.
