Reviews - What do customers think about Active Word Play?
Thank you, Jane Feber! Feb 16, 2008
I am thrilled to find a book filled with practical and fun activities to motivate my students. Every page offers hands on learning lessons that are illustrated and explained well. As a busy teacher, I don't want to spend my time slogging through theory and personal experience stories when I am looking for ideas for the classroom. I know that teaching vocabulary is important to build background knowledge in my students to increase their comprehension. Now I have a book filled with a variety of effective, easy to use ideas that are already differentiated. I can go from planning to execution in record time because each lesson is clearly and completely explained with materials lists and step by step directions. Also, I appreciate the variations and suggestions that come with many of the lessons. These methods are not only great for learning vocabulary; they can be used for many other concepts as well.
