From social studies and history to science and math, you'll find a galaxy of over 1,500 illustrated words based on the content area curriculum of grades 3 to 6. The 60 topics (12 to 20 words per topic) are grouped into 8 thematic units and can be used in any order for dynamite learning! The dictionary includes an appendix of ESL material--just one of the many ways it was created to be extremely flexible for adaptation in a wide variety of classroom situations and needs. A special reproducibles collection offers supplementary material, from word and picture cards to content readings, content chants (by Carolyn Graham), and worksheets. The teacher's book provides lesson ideas, specific activities for exploring each topic, a comprehensive grammar syllabus, and more! If you're going "crazy for content," you'll find your sanity here!
