vocabulary parades

This is a great book by Debra Frasier. It is the inspiration for the vocabulary parades going on in dozens of elementary schools across the country. Due to a vocabulary "disaster", (Sage was out sick on vocabulary definition day) she thinks miscellaneous is really a person: Miss Alaineus, queen of all odd or lost things. This causes much embarrassment in school, but in the end our main character makes lemonade out of those lemons. Very funny book! You can learn more about her books and get some teaching resources at Check out the last post, it is a Youtube video of a vocabulary parade in an elementary school. Christine
