Word Nerds: Teaching All Students to Learn and Love Vocabulary based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is stuffed with ideas that are perfect for elementary students and too good for students to resist. The potential that strategic vocabulary has is too important to disregard.
I am in full agreement with authors Brenda and Leslie that vocabulary instruction is an under-valued component of literacy instruction. Word Nerds was full of practical strategies to use in the classroom and the rationale behind them. If you aren't certain that you should be focusing on teaching vocabulary before reading this little gem, you will be by the time you've finished it! I look forward to using these strategies in my instruction this school year, and I am hopeful that my students will benefit from them just as Brenda's and Leslie's students did.
