CLL1 – The child will listen to conversations and demonstrate comprehension
CLL1.4c Extends/expands thoughts or ideas expressed. 

WSO: Uses expanded vocabulary and language for a variety of purposes. 

Activities: Language Charts.  Work with student about writing out ideas on paper.

Writing Cards. Word cards matched with pictures in your writing area expose students to new words while visually demonstrating their meaning.

Conversation.  Talk with your students.  When you sit down with your students at lunch, the playground, during centers, or at any other free moment in the day try to engage them in conversation as much as you can.  Strive for five.  Work to go back and forth in conversation with a child at least five times during each interaction.  

Books: Every and any title that you read can expand the vocabulary and language of your students.  
Nursery rhymes and fairy tales are great foundations for building young children's vocabulary.
