        Build Background: Vocabulary (The Cat in the Hat) | Teaching Tips

        Kindergarten teacher Allison Frometa demonstrates how she builds students' background knowledge about key vocabulary to maximize what they will learn when playing an online game. She models techniques for providing child-friendly definitions, giving multiple examples of using the words, repeating them frequently during the lesson, and prompting students to use new vocabulary as they play the game.
