What educators are saying

I really enjoyed this resource. My students really needed a boost in their vocabulary and this was great! Thank you!
This is a great way to introduce vocabulary to young students. The students retained the vocabulary, finding the words again and again in their own reading and using the words in their writing.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “If you are considering purchasing this set - you should! My kids are loving all of the new words. At the beginning of the year they asked if they could say "Ding" like a bell whenever they heard one of the words in any of our readings.... 19 bazillions dings later..... they even ding to themselves when they are testing! They are so excited to find our words AND they want to learn more words. For second language learners this has been heaven- sent!” - Martha T.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “What an incredible resource for authentic vocabulary instruction! This is exactly what I was looking for to help teach my second and third graders new vocabulary words. The activities are engaging and the mentor texts are a perfect way to practice vocabulary words within context. “ - Brittney H. 

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I've been using it for several years now! My kids still remember their vocab words years later!” - Shannon D.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “This may be my favorite resource of ALL time. The routine is simple yet engaging and the vocab words are words that the students see often. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't have at least one student point out one of the Jargon Journal vocabulary words in their independent reading. You will not regret this purchase!” - Brittany B.
