I was moved to first grade this year and begged my school for Sadlier Vocabulary. This year, I am using it in first grade. The students absolutely love this program and ask daily if we are doing vocabulary today. The online components reads to the students which is AMAZING! I LOVE how this program requires the students to think critically about the definitions and use them in the correct way.
My school uses the vocabulary series with the print and digital component. The sales representative, Terry who works with our school is very helpful.
I have used the Sadlier Vocabulary program in the past to work with high school and middle school students who were several grade levels behind, It was a tremendous resource.
I use Vocabulary Workshop as a daily warmup in my senior A.P. Literature class. I have found that the repeated exposure to the words over the course of the week leads to the words “sticking.” They often pop up in students' writing as the semester goes on, and students will recognize them in the works we read, commenting that they remember a word from a previous unit in the vocabulary book.
I have been teaching English for 23 years now, and over the course of my tenure, I have tried a variety of approaches and workbooks for vocabulary instruction. Nine years ago, I was introduced to Vocabulary Workshop by a colleague, and I have used it ever since. The caliber of vocabulary in each unit is sophisticated, useful, and age appropriate challenging. I also like the exercises in each unit as they ask the kids to work with the words in various ways to reinforce the meaning and usage.
I enjoy the variety of activities for the list of words for each unit. I am glad the students are exposed to other ways to use and look at words in the unit reviews.
I’ve used your Vocabulary book for 4 years. The skills students develop as they enrich their vocabulary include learning to look for context clues, developing close reading skills, and perseverance through challenging practice and has been great.
