Come join us as we go on our "academic knowledge" journey. We will be learning academic vocabulary in grades K-5 for the curriculum areas of language arts, math, science, and social studies. The academic vocabulary words come from the GPS (Georgia Proficiency Standards).
I adapted some of the ideas of my friends, Diane Hodgkins and Rebeca Richardson, who are also ESOL teachers. My fellow ESOL teachers in Polk County have worked with me on this project: Carolyn Drummond, Tammy Trawick, Linda Boggs, Dara Gastley, Kathy Lindsey, Odette Estes, James Hurst, and Julie Williams.
Some of the graphics for the books, stickers, cards, games, and other activities came from graphic artists who are merchants at http://www.renderosity.com . I bought some of the products for the graphics and others were given to me by some of these special merchants who wanted to support my educational venture. Thank you my CG friends, Kat "artgrafx", jaguarwoman, Kelley "edain", Donna "pizazz", Jean-Luc, Ariana "darkephazegraphix", Rena "renapd", 3DSublimeProductions, Pam "4udreamcatcher", Liz "etomchec", Carol "romanceworks", pappy411, CodemanStudios, and many others.

vacation suitcase stickers
Print these onto Avery #8164 (3 1/3" x 4")
labels which you can stick onto the "school suitcase" when
the student has mastered a certain amount of tasks.
Just click on Language Arts, Math, Science,
or Social Studies under your grade level below to find the vocabulary
words you can practice. All flash cards are color
coded. Language Arts are blue, Math are red, Science are
green, and Social Studies are brown. I also put the grade level
in one corner in small print. If the cards get mixed together,
you will know in which group they belong. You can also
go to other pages on the website to play games,
get practice worksheets, get flash cards, see slide shows,
and practice ABC order. Scroll down to the bottom of
this page to find these for grades K-5.
