Effective Vocab Bulletin Board

Teaching vocabulary is only good for students if they actually LEARN the words. Here’s one way a teacher uses a bulletin board to increase students’ vocabulary:








Make sure to post:

1. the vocab word (big enough to see from every desk)

2. a simple definition

3. a simple picture to help explain the definition

4. a list of previously learned vocab words

This teacher introduces the words (10 each week) on Monday and then reviews all the words every morning (only takes a few minutes on Tues-Friday). The class also comes up with a gesture for each word. I’ve seen her class do these vocab activities, and let me tell ya, these kids really learn the words!
