Vocabulary By Colors!

CorrectedChartShannon Torres is a third grade teacher at Della Lamb Charter School in Kansas City, Missouri and she has come up with a colorful and effective way to teach vocabulary. The picture below is from her classroom where she has implemented Easy-Smart-Brilliant-Antonym! Shannon pre-reads her reading program (Signature 2) and creates an “Easy-Smart-Brilliant-Antonym” lists for every word. For example: weird (easy)—strange (smart)—bizarre (brilliant)—ordinary (antonym) She put them on sentence strips. They are posted all around her room. They are color coded- Easy is always red, smarts yellow, brilliant is green and the antonym is black. She encourages kid to use the posted words- especially the "brilliant" ones. Great work, Shannon and thanks for sharing!
