Shirley, NY, November 12, 2014 – To enhance their vocabulary while at the same time having a little fun, students in Grace Ryan’s, Matt Miller’s and Rebecca Gaddis’s fifth-grade classes at John S. Hobart Elementary School in the William Floyd School District, participated in “Vocabulary Hat Day,” a fun and educational day based on the book “Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster.”
Students were assigned a word that they researched and had to construct a sentence around. They also wrote out the word and placed it on their hats. Then on Vocabulary Hat Day, family members were invited to hear the students talk all about their words.
