I chose the article entitled “Promoting Language Arts: Through vocabulary development with internet resources in the elementary classroom” by author Edward J. Lazaros (2012). According to Lazaros (2012), students can have fun while learning new vocabulary through the use of free internet resources. The author further states that early childhood educators should promote language arts through vocabulary development at any time possible.
I chose this article to find out innovative ways in which we can increase students’ vocabulary. This article teaches me that early childhood educators have an important role in developing students’ vocabulary. This article also highlighted the fact that “there is strong evidence that the home and school environment exert a powerful influence on both the size and depth of children’s vocabularies”.
Lazaros (2012) posited that learning new technical vocabulary words should be made fun for students. The author also states that students need to be exposed to new vocabulary terms on a regular basis, which will eventually make them more proficient at reading. According to Jalongo and Sobolak (2011) cited in article students need to know at least six new words per day in order for children to become proficient readers. The author emphasized that early childhood educators can expose students to new vocabulary through the use of free internet resources which can actively engaged students in the learning process.
Lazaros (2012) classified vocabulary in three ‘unique tiers’. Tier 1 consist of easily understood vocabulary such as “door”, Tier 2 consist of words that are often used by more mature language users, while Tier 3 are words that are used in particular subject area such as mathematics and science.
Lazaros (2012) further asserts that internet resources can promote the development of general and specific technology related words. The author further highlights that people uses technologies on a daily basis and students should become familiar with the terms. Lazaros (2012) outlined two free internet games that can be used to introduce technical vocabulary terms in the everyday classroom; these include “Computer Vocabulary puzzle” and “Find the Technology”. In closing, the article highlights that fact that the home and school environment have a powerful influence on both the size and depth of children’s vocabularies.
