I'm rethinking the way I teach vocabulary... I don't think I do enough with vocabulary. I'm currently reading a book called Bringing Words to Life, Robust Vocabulary Instruction. It's an interesting read. I'm just curious how other teachers teach vocabulary. How do you decide which words to focus on? Do you use the words your basal highlights? What about vocabulary from content areas, do you spend a lot of time focusing on those words? Do you have weekly vocabulary activities your kids work on? How much time do you spend on vocabulary? I love reading how other teachers run their classrooms.. There are some great ideas out there!! Thanks!!
