• Students practice vocabulary acquisition each time they visit the STEM Lab.  Students learn how to pronounce words and their meanings.  Additionally, through the “I say, You say, We all say the definition” activity they have a safe environment to practice making academic vocabulary in their speaking, writing, and day-to-day lives.

    Academic vocabulary means words that are precise, sometimes domain specific, and add value to conversation and writing.

    Examples We Use Every Day:
