One of my most recent discoveries: Vocabulary Builder!
My friend found this through Julie at Second Grade Style for her 2nd grade class and I was so excited to see that they had an app for grades 3&4 and also 5&6 as well as 1&2!
I am planning on using this app to help on those mornings when I cannot think of a Word of the Day to save my life (especially when I haven't had enough coffee!) :)

For those of you who may be new to my blog, I use Word of the Day as a vocabulary-building transition tool throughout our day. It is a part of our Morning Meeting and I introduce the word to the class, define it, use it in a sentence and then kids need to listen for that word at the end of my directions during the day before they can leave their seat and begin.
It works like a charm and I love it!
I use words from:
- our social studies & science units
- character ed lessons
- current events
- math terms
- reading group vocab we have found
- student-nominated words using my Vistaprint business cards
- and now this app!
I hope this helps and I'd love to hear any other easy vocabulary resources you have!
