Publisher Comments:

There's not a more potent medicine for correcting reading problems and boosting test scores than effective vocabulary-building. This book shows you how to dynamically teach vocabulary before, during, and after reading—in every subject area. Easy mini-lessons on tackling key concept words, roots, prefixes, and suffixes, using context clues, and more. Lots of fun word games, including idiom sleuthing, word history maps, vocabulary quilting, synonym sentences, homophone hunts, and more. A handy Appendix provides key roots and origins, eponyms, and portmanteau words kids will be captivated by. For use with Grades 4-8.

Synopsis:

Make vocabulary lessons meaningful and fun! Includes easy mini-lessons for teaching vocabulary strategies they can use for a lifetime, plus many activities that keep word-building exciting. CATALOG BLURB: Correct reading problems and boost test scores wi
