Vocabulary Day Parade

We are excited to announce that Southwest will be hosting a Vocabulary Parade on Friday, November 7th.  Students have been working all year on improving their reading and writing, and a Vocabulary parade is a perfect way to celebrate their hard work! This parade is designed to foster the enjoyment of reading and writing and learn some new vocabulary words.

For the parade, the students may choose any word they like and then create a visual depiction of the word. It does not have to be a “costume.”

Students should print their word on a sign or poster and are encouraged to do any of the following options:

  • Make a cardboard, paper bag or material puppet from the chosen word.
  • Make a hat that represents the word.
  • Make a poster to hold that illustrates the meaning of the word.
  • Wear small objects that relate to the word.
  • Dress in a costume that represents the word.

For example, if a student choses the word ‘glimmer,” he could create a sparkly hat to wear. If you are looking for ideas to help, visits the following website: http://www.debrafrasier.com/pages/books-events/miss-alaineus/index.php. The idea is not to spend a lot of money but to be creative in the way that you represent the word!
