Goal

Our goal at ELMS Academy of Engineering is to continue building our schoolwide vocabulary program--Wacky Word Wednesday by providing each child with an interactive vocabulary workbook: Words to Go by Perfection Learning. 

 

What will be done with my students

Each week in our AVID-based homeroom, students spend time in hands-on vocabulary activities. 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefits of having a standardized vocabulary run deep! Students build a common vocabulary, increase their reading comprehension, and practice incorporating new words into their conversations.

While is often thought that vocabulary will be learned simply through wide exposure to listening and reading, students benefit more from having a program in order to encourage quantity and quality of their vocabularies.

The entire staff of ELMS is involved in Wacky Word Wednesday and this program will benefit the entire student body. 

 

Describe the Students

ELMS serves a wide range of grade 6-8 students, ranging from ESE to gifted, with varying reading levels. Students are eager to incorporate Greek and Latin roots into our STEM-based curriculum! 

 

Budget Narrative

I am respectfully requesting $788 to offset the cost of the vocabulary books needed to implement this schoolwide program.
