Lanesborough Elementary School Holds 'Vocabulary Parade'

Print Story | Email Story

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Lanesborough Elementary School held its annual Vocabulary Day Parade on Nov. 22.

Students in kindergarten through sixth grade dressed up in colorful and creative costumes signifying words of their choosing. Both new additions to students' vocabulary and old favorites were portrayed, with students dressed up to represent words like "festival," "currency," "claustrophobia" and "illuminate."

"Not only is the parade a lot of fun for students, their parents, and the whole school community, but the vocabulary parade is a time kids will acquire new words as well," Principal Martin McEvoy said. "Non-linguistic representations have been shown to be powerful learning agents, and it is also an opportunity for us to foster the love of words and language in our students.
