Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

ELA Vocabulary and Grammar: Supporting Common Core Learning Standards in Engaging Ways Description: It comes as a relief to know that the vocabulary and grammar expectations for students are no longer ambiguous or subjective; each grade level is expected to master particular grammar and vocabulary skills. The standards are also clear that the mastery of these skills requires use of grammar and vocabulary. It is important to keep in mind that identification of grammar terms and vocabulary words are not a prerequisite for usage and so, in this workshop, teachers will develop a deeper understanding of what the standards are at their grade level. Teachers will explore the many experiences that students can have with grammar and vocabulary to meet the standards in ways that go above and beyond workbook based methods into playful, meaningful experiences with word learning and grammar. Teachers will walk away with: • A collection of vocabulary words and word learning tools • Strategies for grammar usage based on student work • A plan for using shared reading and writing to practice word learning and grammar Materials: Favorite read aloud text, device (i.e. laptop, tablet, if you have one).
