Picture Books that Build Vocabulary: Annie and the Wild Animals
The words for Week 11 are from the picture book, Annie and the Wild Animals by Jan Brett. I noticed that in my son’s Kindergarten room, the teacher or maybe literacy specialist, mounts a special poster with the cover of book and the list of vocabulary words from the book.
They have a time called “Text Talk” where they read the story and talk about the big words. The words stay up all year so the children can look at them. Sometimes, the words come home via a handout to the parents in my child’s backpack, but times are tough and I think they are conserving on paper so I copied these words from the posters and made up the sentences myself.
I find that this post is very popular so I will continue it on my own as my child is moving on first grade shortly.
p.s. I have a category of posts on SAT Vocabulary Words for Kindergarteners here.
growls: My stomach growls when I am hungry.
grumpy: Ali is really grumpy at night when she’s tired.
imagined: I imagined what it would feel like to be at the beach.
unexpected: It was unexpected that my dad’s plane would be delayed for four hours in New York.
strategy: My teacher said that sounding out the letters was a good strategy to read words.
tame: The pigeons were so tame at the park that they ate bread from a man’s hand.
