#2: Be a model of good speech and get your kids to say words out loud
Most subjects have keywords that the kids have to remember. My subject – Science, has many!
When a keyword comes up, get the kids to:
- Write it
- Highlight it
- Use it
- Say it
I’ll often get all of the kids to say words out loud:
Me: “So what’s the positive electrode called, please?”
Class: “The anode”
Me: “Excellent. Say, ‘an-ode”
Me: “Not everyone said it. Again please”
All of the class: “An-ode”
I’ve also written a blog post about reinforcing key vocabulary, which you may find helpful, here.
