    Go for it!! But you need a hook for the word of the week, not just to bring it into the classroom out of nowhere. I bought one of those decorated posters with a blank space in the centre. There I put the letters WOW (word of the week, but also WOW what a cooool word). We added a word to it whenever we found a great word in one of our stories. We worked hard to use the word lots that week, and many of the children continued to expand their vocabulary by looking for more WOW words outside of school and bringing them to our attention in class. I got comments from several parents about the expanded language their child was enjoying using.
