I absolutely love the internet as a resource for ideas. I recently ran across the idea for Word Nerds and started it with my third grade class today. I was amazed at the response and creativity from my students. A lot of research points to the fact that a child's vocabulary strongly correlates with their academic success. I know many parents often wonder why I send home a National Vocabulary List every week to review, this is why. This is also why I think Word Nerds will be a great idea!
