WHY USE THIS: A key part of the Common Core shift is transitioning from a long list of vocabulary words to in-depth instruction on only a few words at a time.
Appendix A of the Common Core Standards states, "Key to students' vocabulary development is building rich and flexible word knowledge. Students need plentiful opportunities to use and respond to the words they learn through playful informal talk, discussion, reading or being read to, and responding to what is read.
Spice Up Your Vocabulary meets this Common Core objective.
