A Plethora of Ideas Mar 22, 2008
Laura Robb's guide to teaching vocabulary minilessons is terrific. I have been using it since it arrived and do not know how I managed before I bought it. I find the strategies helpful as I struggle to provide the kind of vocabulary instruction the children need while using the Teacher's College model of reading and writing instruction. I had been frustrated with the lack of time to teach vocabulary and find that her suggestions weave the instruction into the reading program smoothly.

This is not the book I was looking for when I bought it. It is okay with some good ideas for teaching vocabulary in context.
