Chets Creek Kindergarten teachers assessed and now are ready to teach the words for each of the "Star" books - lessons they have written themselves to go with their favorite read-alouds. Below teachers demonstrate the word frightened and then the students show what they think they would look like if they were frightened!
Frightened is one of the six vocabulary words taught as the class has enjoyed the read-aloud Where the Wild Things Are. Other words for this unit include private, tame, adventure, rumpus, longing. As the students study the word frightened they also make a two-column list of things that would be frightening and things that would not be frightening. There is certainly nothing to be frightened about for these youngsters because vocabulary is alive and well in their kindergarten classes!
