Vocabulary comprehension can be the difference between pass and fail on a test, as it is key to conceptual comprehension and therefore to understanding the events depicted by that vocabulary. When 1st grade students know the specific meanings of words, they can more easily relate them to a particular context and in turn better grasp the broader lesson at hand. If students don't understand the words used in a lesson, they are not likely to understand the lesson as a whole. When students know the meanings of their words, their confidence and interest levels increase, leading to academic success. Vocabulary building through fun interactive games keeps students engaged and motivated to keep learning.
