Thanks to “Finding Joy in 6th Grade” for extending this award to me. I especially enjoy this award because of the meaning of the word- versatile. I was also touched by her comment, “I am re-thinking teaching decimals thanks to this great site! Great math ideas abound!”
Speaking of word meanings…Have you ever needed a kid friendly definition of a word, and struggled to create that definition? I was part of a team writing lessons to accompany Making Meaning lessons using alternative texts for our Multi-grade classrooms in our district, and I needed to create kid friendly definitions to define text vocabulary. A great online dictionary that helped me and can help you too is called the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English online.
