1212 chelsea vocab day
Chelsae Intermediate School fifth graders Carson Rich and Ty Adema showcase their words electric and effervescent.
On Oct. 25, Chelsea Intermediate School hosted Vocabulary Day. The event was based on the book Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster by Debra Frasier. Students selected an interesting word and designed a costume to represent the word. The students included the definition of the word and used the word in a sentence.
Students demonstrated the meaning and usage of a variety of words, exposing the entire school to a plethora of new vocabulary terms. The purpose of the day was to expand students’ word knowledge in an exciting and memorable way, hopefully strengthening students’ vocabulary in their writing, reading and speaking. Teachers and staff also participated in the fun day.
