Vocabulary is a major shift in the CC ELA standards.  Academic and domain specific vocabulary are expected to be introduced beginning in Kindergarten.  What words should be introduced to students and when?  That's a question that has been stumping a lot of teachers.

I did some research and found some resources that I think will help answer those questions!
