Now that we are in Spring and Spring Break is here, or near, why not practice Bilingual Spring Vocabulary Words by using Bilingual Spring Picture Books. There are fun ways to practice Spring-related vocabulary in both languages, such as scavenger hunts and word games. Check out this previous post where you can learn to play Fat Cat, which is just Vocabulary Hangman but instead of drawing a man, you draw a cat. You can also create your own word search by visiting The Teacher’s Corner and entering your own list of words. There are many types of games and flashcards you can use to practice Vocabulary Words, see below for a link.  

Why Is It Important to Practice Vocabulary Words?

Practicing vocabulary words as well as taking time to read aloud to your child, or students, boosts their reading comprehension for all ages. The more words they know, the better understanding they have of text and the more they can expand their communication.  If you think about it, we all learn and think differently. Therefore, we can incorporate different ways to help children learn Vocabulary, such as visual illustrations, spelling the words, reading bilingual spring picture books that contain those types of words, etc.
