How I Use It
I use this nearly weekly with my students. I create a word list to coincide with a topic - math, science, social studies, reading, etc. I use the word cards with definitions as a sort/match in small groups to introduce the topic, words, and definitions. Then, I use the word cards with definitions to reinforce. The supplemental pages are used for independent practice and quizzes. There are games and graphic organizers that are useful for centers and supplemental use as well.
My Take
This is an easy to implement vocabulary program that requires little preparation. I like that is user friendly and can be used weekly for a vocabulary routine. Additionally, it is not just words and definitions. The practice pages include analogies, sentence completion, and application to check for deeper understanding.
