CLL2 – The child will acquire vocabulary introduced in conversations, activities, stories and/or books.
CLL2.4b Connects new vocabulary from activities, stories and books with prior experiences and conversations. 
WSO: Uses expanded vocabulary and language for a variety of purposes. 

Okay, this can be done so many ways with so many books.  The important thing here is connecting vocabulary to a sense of understanding.  This can come from the student asking question or by us explaining where we might have seen an example of the term before.  

I know this must sound lazy paired with the ideas shared for the last Language and Literacy indicator, but this is what they are truly about.  Not vocabulary terms or dictionary hunts, but students using inferential definition to define new words.
