9781571103666: Word Savvy: Integrating Vocabulary, Spelling, and Wordy Study, Grades 3-6

Tired of assigning weekly spelling lists that your students memorize for the test only to have them misspell the words in their daily writing? Then join Max Brand in his fifth-grade classroom where word learning is integrated fully into literacy workshops.

Using spelling investigations, word study notebooks, reading logs, and writers' notebooks, students learn to savor new words, puzzle over confusing pronunciations, and test new spelling strategies. Max moves beyond the concept of the word wall by using the walls in his classroom as a collective writer's notebook. Students choose and illustrate words, phrases, and sentences from books to create colorful, ever-changing displays throughout the room.

Thirty-plus sample lessons in Word Savvy detail everything from teaching vocabulary in content areas to developing anchor charts for word learning throughout the year. Teachers will be able to create a reflective classroom environment where language development is at the heart of learning. Discussions, reading, and writing are opportunities for explicit instruction of word concepts, helping students become responsible for their learning as they use these concepts in revising, editing, and inferring the meaning of new words they encounter.

About the Author:

Max became a teacher because he loves to learn and teaching gives him the chance to learn a ton every day.

"Each day is a new experience. No matter what you plan for, the kids take ownership and extend thinking/understanding to fantastic heights."

Max is a graduate of Ohio State University, and he most recently taught fifth grade at Eli Pinney Elementary School outside Columbus, Ohio. Max is now retired, though he still tutors students, specializing in word work and learning through discussion. 

He enjoys birding, walking, and helping to conserve the environment.
