Photo Gallery: Eliot School Vocabulary Parade
Third graders showed off their costumes illustrating various words during a Halloween day lesson that was part learning, part just plain fun.
Before putting on their official Halloween costumes for an evening of Trick-or-Treating, students at John Eliot School dressed up as vocabulary words and paraded around the building during a creative lesson designed to boost kids’ word power.
Inspired by the children’s book “Miss Alaineus” by Debra Frasier, the third and fourth grade classes at Eliot School used handmade costumes to illustrate the meaning of words such as “criminal,” “fluffy” and “ambidextrous.”
The fourth grade classes visited one another’s classrooms and had the other students guess their words, while the third graders stood up and introduced their words before participating in a parade through other rooms in the building on the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 31.
