These books are amazing! I love lists to begin with but these books are imbued with useful resources. I love to refer to them when create new word sorts or when I am making a practice page or activity based on a specific skill.
Author: Edward B. Fry
The Vocabulary Teacher's Book of Lists is just as amazing as the Reading Teacher's Book of Lists, Aside from the fact that it includes twenty four methods for teaching vocabulary, it is full of information about prefixes, suffixes, homophones, and so on and so forth. You just have to see it to believe it. If you click on the picture of the book, it will take you to the Amazon.com website where you can look inside.
While I was surfing the internet looking for more information about Edward B. Fry, I happened upon this website: http://www.uniqueteachingresources.com/Fry-1000-Instant-Words.html It has Fry's 1000 most frequently used words available for download. I love that there are color coded flashcards as well as assessment tools. Please take the time to read this page. It is full of useful information. The downloads are found at the very bottom of the page and the best part is that they are FREE!
