The Matthew Effect

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” —Matthew 25:29

In terms of vocabulary development, good readers read more, becoming better readers and learning more words; poor readers read less, becoming poorer readers and learning fewer words.

What can we do about this?

The short answer is we need to get all kids immersed in words!

The longer answer will be addressed by many strategies I present throughout my upcoming blogs.

Third Grade Set 1 # 5


  1. These look awesome! Wish I could find a set for kindergarten!

  2. Some of the teachers I teach with met today. We were discussing how to increase our students’ vocabulary. I stumbled upon your blog (pinterest). Your ideas and cards are going to be so helpful! I can’t wait to share them with my fellow cohorts!

    • Thanks! I am so glad to hear that they will be of value to you.
