Hello, readers! It's been quite a while since I've posted on my blog. As many of you may recall, in addition to writing The Maisy Files, I'm also a teacher. Specifically, I teach sixth-grade language arts. I've decided to dedicate my first post back to a teaching topic. I've also included a freebie download that other teachers may find useful.
I would imagine that most teachers have skills they enjoy teaching more than others. Or, perhaps even just topics that they feel are more important than others. For me, that topic is vocabulary instruction. I am sure this comes from the fact that I like words. That's not surprising, is it? A teacher and author likes words! In my personal experience over the last eighteen years, I have found that the more vocabulary skills students have, the more successful they are in their comprehension and writing skills.
