WordGirl Webcast

From On Our Minds at Scholastic:

Teachers and students – get ready for the second annual WordGirl Definition Competition, a free classroom webcast where kids can *dabble* in word domination (no cape required) on April 27th at 1:00 PM (ET) / 10:00 AM (PT)!

In this 30-minute webcast, WordGirl will *engage* students in a fun and entertaining game-show style vocabulary challenge. Students will face villains (in the form of poor word choices) and have an opportunity to practice word usage, reading comprehension, definitions and using words in different contexts. And, as our official *Ambassador* of Summer Reading, WordGirl will kick off the Scholastic Summer Challenge to get students excited about books and reading all summer long.

The event is not only a great way for students to build their *incredible* vocabulary strength, it’s also easy to incorporate into your lesson plans. Once you register your class, you’ll receive an Event Kit with WordGirl vocabulary activities to prep your students for the big day. If you can’t make the event on April 27th, replays will be available soon after the show.
