Our class has a Vocabulary.com account. Vocabulary plays an important part in learning to read. Beginning readers must use the words they hear orally to make sense of the words they see in print. Vocabulary is key to reading comprehension. Readers cannot understand what they are reading without knowing what most of the words mean.  Class code below.⬇︎
