In this series of videos, Cullen’s abc’s tours Boston, Massachusetts, offering children both a view of history and new words associated with each celebrated person or site.
“Preschoolers love to learn new big words,” states Cullen Wood; Founder of Cullen’s abc’s, “It is even better to introduce a new word to a preschooler with a real example such as an historical figure.”
The new words in these idea videos™ (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=45BA7B6370940D70) are linked with an historical person or place. “Patriot” is introduced at the statue of Paul Revere. “Statesman” is discussed in front of Alexander Hamilton’s statue. “Inventor” is associated with Benjamin Franklin’s statue. “Monument” is introduced at the Bunker Hill Monument. The word “history” is described in front of the North Church in Boston.
New words use with repetition and in different ways increase preschoolers vocabulary. Using history is just one creative way to introduce words and build preschoolers vocabulary. Later in their development, they may also associate those words with the historical event when re-introduced to history.
