Academic Vocabulary

EPS students are working hard this year to learn as much as possible, and parents can help! Below you will find lists of key academic vocabulary terms that are considered essential to your child's education. Knowledge of these words will help your student be successful in life, in the classroom and on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (CRTs) that are given each April.

The key to mastering the words is using them! Please regularly encourage your child to include the terms in sentences, and try to do the same when you talk with your child. Ask your student to tell you the definition of each term using his/her own words. By increasing exposure to this vocabulary, you can help your child have a more meaningful understanding of these important terms.

Thank you for supporting your child's academic success!
