Year 1 Vocabulary for more able children

    One of my colleagues suggested having vocabulary available for more able children in the class. Can anyone tell, me if you have used this, how you set it up in the classroom? Would it just be words or challenges. I'm not sure I can envisage it at the moment and would be grateful for any suggestions.

    Many thanks

    What do you mean by having vocabulary available?

    Sorry I think a basket or bank of words - I have topic related word cards around the room and in pockets for the children to use but maybe I will go back to her and clarify.....

    We have a word of the day. I have a dictionary on my lap and choose 1 child to say stop as I leaf through the pages - i then choose a word I think will enhance their writing etc. My class are Year 1 - they enjoy this.

    My reply is more of a vocab enhancement idea.
