Teachers and students at Hollywood Hills Elementary (HHE) were part of the vocabulary parade. The kindergarten and fifth grade parade took place on January 27 and the first, second, third, and fourth grade parade took place on January 30.
Students and teachers dressed as nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, social studies, and science words to join the vocabulary parade inspired by Debra Frasier’s book, “Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster.” They came to school dressed as a vocabulary word from a list or of their choice, that matched the theme for their grade. They would then go in the halls and around the school showing their costumes in a parade while other students and parents watched.
Third grade student Pilar Reverte dressed as the word “colorfully.” She wore scrunchies with a colorful top and jeans.
“[My favorite part was] walking in the cafeteria because people are staring at you,” Reverte said. “It’s a time for the kids to have fun.”
Teachers also participated in this event. Third grade teacher Mrs. Vidal dressed as the word “athletically.” Mrs. Vidal wore a football jersey to represent her word. She enjoyed seeing each student’s unique costume.
“My favorite part of the parade was definitely seeing all of the costumes because they were really original,” Mrs. Vidal said.
