Upper elementary students LOVE The Secret Word
! It's great for small group word work and vocabulary-building. Included are 20 lessons using the letters of a science or social studies word as manipulatives for students to use while making words. The emphasis is more about exposure to new vocabulary than spelling and phonics. It's especially great for small groups because so many new words can be introduced in a very low stress and fun way. The Secret Word is most valuable as a teacher-directed, small-group activity. Detailed teacher directions are included. The pages could also be used in literacy centers.
