A update from Dena and Corbett Harrison.

If you're already a subscriber/purchaser of our new Common Core Vocabulary Lessons, here is a link to a page with some new online resources you can link to from your own teacher websites without violating any copyright issues: http://corbettharrison.com/Vocabulary.htm
I've been revising my Vocabulary Page for my students, to help them collect their weekly words with more efficiency and with more pizzazz, if desired.  They have been fiercely competing for the "Vocabulary Collector of the Week" awards that I am giving to those who go above and beyond with presenting their four new words for the week.  Check out my Pinterest Board with photos of their best 4-word collections so far this year:  http://www.pinterest.com/corbettharrison/vocabulary-collectors/
If you'd like a glimpse into my students' weekly vocabulary collecting and writing expectations, I invite you to check out the new resources I've freshly posted.  I'm particularly proud of my eight teacher-made exemplars and the new on-line form that many of my handwriting-challenged students will take advantage of.  By the end of this month, there will be newly-added links for those of you who are adapting/using my vocabulary collecting method to post your students' best examples:  http://corbettharrison.com/Vocabulary.htm
I have been selling my PowerPoint lessons for each of my ten vocabulary/writing techniques since early August, and I am very pleased with the positive response from so many of you.  You can access two of the complementary Powerpoint lessons using this link:  http://corbettharrison.com/products.html#vocab
I hope your Octobers are as beautiful as ours has been here in Northern Nevada.  Teach on!
