Vocabulary Instruction at Home Depot?!

By Mackenzie Sheahan @kenziesheahan

“Comprehension is the reason for reading, and vocabulary plays a significant role in comprehension” (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, 2000). The question is, what kind of instruction do you think best promotes the development of comprehension and vocabulary?

I came across this video on Tch or otherwise known as The Teaching Channel while looking at some Common Core videos.  This is a great idea that could really be applied to any grade level K-12.  I really do believe that this could go cross grade level and be used in some really neat ways!  Not to mention we can get the materials for free at your local Home Depot, Menards, or paint store!

How would you use paint chips in your classroom?  Are there any other ideas or methods you use in your room for vocabulary enrichment?
