The Weighty Word Book is an EXCELLENT book that cleverly uses humor and a play on words to create short stories to help children remember meanings of words!
This unit plan that I have developed has worked in my classes when I taught second grade, fourth grade, sixth grade, seventh grade, and eighth grade. I took the idea the authors of The Weighty Word Book and showed my students how to apply this to their own vocabulary words in any subject. It works!!!! I have included a student example.
