  • You have done a wonderful random act of kindness for ALL teachers everywhere. We are sincerely in your debt. Could you put all the Lesson Plan Sessions on a CD? I know I would pay for it! You could easily sell them to all of us desparate teachers who really need this kind of time-saving material. Thank you so much. I will be back to Vocabulary U. weekly to download your supplemental resources and to download the word lists and other new feature arrivals!

  • What I really liked about myvocabulary.com is that it is both teacher and student friendly. It offers students hints to not leave them frustrated and the variety is sure to not leave them bored. Many tips and ideas for teachers are offered as well. My favorite part of the site is that it also offers themed units, pertaining to themes such as various holidays, sports and my favorite, vocabulary words dealing with character education. Another great aspect of this site is that it has a section for vocabulary from 130 popular texts that many students read.

Your word lists will allow my special education students to express themselves by simply recognizing word, as opposed to have to retrieve words, their weakness. I will use the word lists in reading and writing activities.

There were five websites chosen for each principle. MyVocabulary.com was the first website listed under "vocabulary."
