A Vocabulary Resource NOT to Be Ignored!

Recently I’ve been thinking about vocabulary instruction. While browsing through the Sonoma County Office of Education Reading Corner, I found a link to Lexile Power Vocabulary. The site explains:

Lexile Power Vocabulary (formerly PowerV) is a systematic and individualized approach to vocabulary development that enables teachers to assist students in grades 2 through 12 to improve their reading comprehension skills. The right-hand columns provide the links to the instructional applications: student word lists, activities and assessment (S), and teacher answer keys (T).

This is a fantastic resource because it contains vocabulary lists and activities for hundreds of books. For example, look at the following resources for Frog and Toad are Friends:

1) Frog and Toad are Friends Word List

2) Frog and Toad are Friends Word List Definitions and Review Activities

3) Frog and Toad are Friends Review Activity Answers

Thanks Kevin Feldman (Director of Reading & Early Intervention, Sonoma County Office of Education) for sharing this resource on Reading Corner! I just joined his Literacy List Serve by emailing him: literacy-on@lists.scoe.org.
