This week, I finished reading "Bringing Words to Life" by Isabel L. Beck, Maragret G. McKeown, and Linda Kucan. It was truly an inspiring book for vocabulary instruction! Stay tuned to my blog as I incorporate ideas from the book into my Language Arts lessons and into my room. I am definitely looking forward to creating a version of "Word Wizards" into my classroom. Also, when I get home I look forward to making activities with Tier Two words for the book "Each Kindness" by Jacqueline Woodson. I really like the activity in which the student chooses between two situations to apply the vocabulary word. This will be the first book I use with my students! I will keep you posted as I develop these ideas further.
