In this animation from SERVE, learn how conversation with a teacher enhances kindergarten vocabulary. When the teacher uses simple questions to ask students to name things, they rely on familiar vocabulary. However, when the teacher engages students in a conversation, new words that the class has been studying come naturally into play, and become permanent parts of the students’ vocabulary.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
