This book presents the most effective instructional strategies for promoting vocabulary growth in the early grades, when the interdependence of word learning and oral language development is especially strong.
The authors guide teachers in choosing the best materials and in fostering home-school connections, and share six key principles for building vocabulary.
Included are guiding questions; text boxes connecting vocabulary to the Common Core State Standards; examples from real teachers; reproducible checklists, rubrics, and other tools; and an appendix of additional vocabulary resources.
Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.
