New! Cooperative Learning & Vocabulary
Stefanie McKoy
Are you looking to make your vocabulary instruction more engaging and memorable? Are you looking for a vocabulary resource that covers the full range of words and vocabulary skills prescribed by the standards? Look no further! These books provide ready-made, cooperative activities for: multiple meaning words, Greek and Latin affixes and roots, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, collective plural nouns, irregular pronouns, compound words, adjectives, adverbs, verbs, commonly misused words, and academic vocabulary. Each section includes 20 grade-appropriate vocabulary words. To master the words in each section, there are five ready-to-do activities based on Kagan Structures. Students quiz classmates using Mix-N-Match and Quiz-Quiz-Trade. Teams use and practice their vocabulary as they play Fan-N-Pick and Showdown. Partners take turns completing vocabulary worksheets using RallyCoach and Sage-N-Scribe. Students put their new vocabulary words to work as they write and share their writing using Think-Write-RoundRobin. Pick and choose a few activities per section, or use them all to ensure full mastery for everyone. This is everything you need for a highly engaging vocabulary program that covers the full range of vocabulary words and skills.

New! Quiz-Quiz-Trade
Rachel Lynette (Grades 2–6)
Quiz-Quiz-Trade is a student favorite! This Kagan Structure turns need-to-know curriculum into a fun and interactive quizzing game. To play, every student receives a quiz card relating to the topic. Students then pair up with a classmate. Using their cards, they quiz each other. After coaching or praising, they trade cards and set off to quiz a new classmate with their new card. The repeated practice boosts retention of the content. Memorizing important information and concepts has never been so fun! Each book is loaded with card sets on a variety of topics. Each card set includes enough ready-to-copy cards for your entire class to play.
