"Vocabulary knowledge is knowledge; the knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world." --Steven A. Stahl, Teaching Word Meanings (2005)
Help your child explore words in multiple contexts so that she can build a deeper understanding of word meanings.
