Fall 2020 Word of the Day (WOD)

Publication Date: 
October 9, 2020

Knowing lots of words helps children become strong readers. Worcester Reads’ Word of the Day (WOD) project will help children learn new words throughout the year. Fall is a great time to explore new words!

Helping kids learn the WOD is simple: Find it. Speak it. Show it.

  • Find the date on the WOD Calendar.
  • Ask them if they know the WOD, use their answers to define it and use it in a sentence.
  • Then use the WOD in sentences throughout the course of the day.
  • Post the WOD or WOD Calendar on your blackboards, bulletin boards, marquees, storefront windows, reception desks, Facebook pages, and websites.
  • Talk it up with everyone!
