School is beginning and teachers are getting ready. Here is a great resource for the dreaded vocabulary we all hat to teach. Courtesy of Dina and Corbett Harrison.
It's complete as of this morning! I am really pleased with how my Vocabulary Resource page turned out at our website. I invite you to look it over; I'm pretty sure you'll all be able to find one usable idea from the many I've posted. It's my hope of hopes that no one takes my classroom ideas and replicates them exactly; good teaching is about adaptation so that ideas fit the needs of your students and their abilities. The invitation to adapt has been extended.
I had an excellent case of insomnia last night and was quite productive, so those of you who purchased my 10 Vocabulary PowerPoint Lessons will have all your updates tomorrow (July 30), not August 5th as I had originally stated. If you don't receive them and you did purchase the set, let me know, but remember, I'm not working on August 1. Thanks!

P.S. I've received numerous e-mails this week from people looking for my colleague's "Transitions in Time" Slides for history curriculum.
