From the best-selling author of The Reading Teacher's Book of Lists comes this hands-on reference containing 180 challenging and engaging lessons-one for each day of the school year. The book is designed to expand the vocabularies of students in grades 6-12 and help them become excited about the life-long process of learning new words. It can be used equally well for in-class activities, self-study, tutoring, or homeschooling. The lessons contained in this book are perfect for sponge activities -five-minute lessons to start off or end each class period-or for a supplementary vocabulary lesson.
