Vocabulary Workshops

 We've all heard the saying "it's not what you say but how you say it".

Why not give your child the best tools to express themselves

clearly, concisely, and convincingly?

Did you know that vocabulary word knowledge is directly related to reading comprehension ability regardless of whether your child is reading classic novels, history textbooks, or scientific journals? Vocabulary building is not just for voracious readers, but it is essential to learning at every level. And the great news is that it is never too late to start adding words to your personal lexicon!

At Online Scribblers, we know that students do not retain lists of vocabulary simply by memorizing words and regurgitating definitions. The best approach for a lasting and usable vocabulary is to approach a set of words with a multi-faceted approach:

  • Vocabulary learning should be interactive.
  • Vocabulary learning should be playful.
  • Vocabulary learning should use context clues.
  • Vocabulary learning should make connections to real life.

Our weekly sessions will include quizzes, but it will also include sentence completion, creative applications, and direct usage. Students will encounter each word multiple times in multiple ways to make connections that last. In addition, students will be able to print flashcards right from their class page to practice independently or hang on the refrigerator or microwave for family learning and engagement. As with all Online Scribblers courses, all student work will be marked individually with personalized feedback.

Vocabulary Workshops have been designed as semester long courses, but there is an option to register only for the first 8 weeks of a session if this better fits your schedule.

**All classes will be capped at 10 students.
***A student who registers for the first 8 week session only and wishes to continue the full semester at that time will have the option to do so at the regular course rate of $159 for the remainder of the course.
