Internet @ Schools

For October 15, 2012: Here is a great way to encourage your students to hone their vocabulary skills. When you subscribe to the free A.Word.A.Day service from Wordsmith, you will receive an email with a new word each day. In addition, you can hear the pronunciation, learn about the word's origin, see an example of how the word is used, and link to a visual reference dictionary. There is a theme for each week and a "thought for the day." The New York Times gives accolades to this website. 

Fly over to CyberBee at for more great websites, lessons, and activities to use with students.
