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!
