Excellent book with specific detailed instructions on creating a vocabulary program that improves students' reading performances. HOWEVER, DO NOT ORDER IT ON KINDLE. The author has excellent templates and charts which are IMPOSSIBLE to read on a kindle. Well written informative book that is documented with researach based data.

I picked this book up on a whim. I hadn't heard anything about it, but was looking for a way to increase vocabulary comprehension in my classroom. I loved, loved, loved this book. So often I will buy a book and read it and think wow this is great but you didn't tell me how to make it work in MY classroom. Not this book! This book provides organizers, explicit instructions on games, classroom implementation, and a plethora of options to adapt to your classroom. Plus it provides information on differentiation for both primary and secondary elementary education classrooms. I have tried a few of these things in my classroom and my students loved them. I have not seen them so engaged and excited about vocabulary before. AND it does NOT require hours of preparation! This next year I am going to start at the beginning of the year and adapt it to all subject areas. I would recommend this to any teacher or parent! I can't sing enough praises for this book.

Great stuff can be found in this book! I'm lucky enough to actually have seen this vocabulary instruction in real life, but the authors describe it so well, you could do it without the real experience. It's an easy practical guide on ways to create a classroom word-loving students and enhance their achievement while having fun!

My students are really learning a lot of new words by adding the synonyms and antonyms to each word they learn. They also love the games, especially the link up game that helps them make connections. Thanks!

This book provides both primary and intermediate vocabulary resources. I read it as part of a book study with teachers at my school in an effort to improve vocabulary instruction in our reading workshop.

I gave this book to all of our Title I supervisors. Our organization is a vendor of targeted Title I eligible students in non-public schools from K-12 in a large midwest city. Most students come from families living in poverty and many are faced with undesirable circumstances outside of school. Almost half of the students we serve are ELLs and this book will help them learn English. For our other students, the games and activities are most inviting. It's great to see excitement about learning words.

I highly recommend this book for any vocabulary instruction you teach. There are lots of practical ideas to put to practice in the classroom as you read. My students are loving vocabulary as we have been having fun becoming "Word Nerds"
