    Read the book that is co-authored with Debra Pickering - its great. I went to a three day training on this last summer and have been using it with the kids - pretty amazing.

    One thing that is important is that when you introduce the word you avoid giving a specific definition. Give explanations, show pictures, tell stories, then let the kids come up with their own definitions from there.

    The method recomends that you have the kids keep a vocabulary notebook, but I worry about them writing down the "wrong" definition - so we use whiteboards - no risk and high interest!
