Karen Bromley shares a new approach to vocabulary instruction that nurtures students’ curiosity about language and gives them the knowledge and skills they need to tackle new words independently.
Find fresh ideas for teaching word structure, context clues, multiple meaning words, synonyms, antonyms and more. Word Scramble, Object Collector, Synonym Stretch, Vocabulary Anchor, and Alphabet Acronyms are among the dozens of engaging activities that boost students’ vocabularies and build their word knowledge.
Complete with ideas for supporting English language learners and struggling readers—this resource is packed with teaching power!
In every chapter of this book, you’ll find ideas for direct instruction, guided practice,
and independent activities to help all kinds of learners build rich vocabularies.
In addition, questions in each chapter will help you “Extend Your Thinking”
and “Teaching in Action” vignettes show you how real teachers use various
vocabulary strategies. You can use many of the practices in this book (and the
reproducibles in the Appendix) not only when you teach reading and writing
but also when you teach science, social studies, math, and other content areas!
