5.0 out of 5 stars Sage Becomes Sager, September 5, 2000
Sage Becomes Sager
This delightful story by award-winning Debra Frasier is a unique trendsetter. As a school librarian, I read and preview many books annually. This is the first book that, upon completion, has prompted me to get online and to participate. Ms Frasier suggests the wonderful idea of organizing a Vocabulary Parade and even presents methods for school wide implementation. Students in all grades can choose a word to demonstrate and this merriment can alleviate the drudgery of the dreaded weekly vocabulary lessons and quizzes. In this age of exhortations toward self-expression and toward community involvement, the concept of dressing up as a word and then presenting your interpretation to the world is intriguing. Sage is embarrassed! In improvising on her definitions of vocabulary words she reveals her lazy methods publicly. Later, she takes her mother's advice, and capitalizes on her error. Can Mom's maxim that there's gold in some mistakes be true? Yes! And can it be applied universally? Yes! A redemptive and illustrative theme resides there for us all. This tale of woe to whoa is rollicking and inspirational.. In addition to the group activity, the book demands re-reading as it is stuffed with other fascinating parts. The end papers contain a Word Search. Sage's free-form definitions and dictionary designations provide the borders and the basis for the Word Search. Included on the activity sheet are 100 vocabulary words to spark costume ideas and step-by-step art techniques. Most importantly, children become aware of the efficacy of words and of their correct usage. I certainly intend to follow Ms Frasier's pioneering lead and plan to spearhead a Vocabulary Parade at my school.
