What educators are saying about the OSWS Vocabulary Lessons...
“Vocabulary instruction has come alive at our school, thanks to One Stop Word Shop! Latina and Janine have worked with our instructional team to customize professional development opportunities that have raised the level of awareness and passion for literacy in our building! Our students are becoming stronger readers and our teachers continue to gain confidence as reading teachers! I highly recommend their services in elementary schools.” Ron Dixon, Principal
“OSWS (Janine) recently worked with a team of sixth grade ELA teachers at my school to implement a vocabulary lesson study. The lessons fully engaged the students and increased their vocabulary skills. Janine was very resourceful and always accessible to assist the teachers when needed both via email and during coaching visits. We hope to continue our partnership with One Stop Word Shop and highly recommend their products and services to other middle schools.” Dorie Hall, Assistant Principal
“The authors of OSWS are thorough in their content knowledge and passionate in their subject area. An enhanced vocabulary is critical to building strong readers and writers and OSWS is the book you need to help you in this area!” Jolanta Kellum, Kaplan Inc.
“Janine & LaTina have changed my life as an educator. Simply speaking to them will make you fall in love with literacy instruction. From coaching to their products, they are knowledgable and approachable. One of my favorites is the OSWS Vocabulary Game! It allows students/ players to create the game-board. This way, you never have to play the same game twice. I have used this game with elementary- aged students in grades K-5 and their parents as well. Janine and LaTina are the true definition of master teachers and I aspire to continue teaching and learning with One Stop Word Shop in my back pocket!” Karah Johnson, Curriculum Facilitator
“One Stop Word Shop has transformed the way we teach vocabulary at our school. We always hear "make sure it is research-based and systematic", but we didn't have any resources to use until now! The One Stop Word Shop approach to teaching and learning is not only research-based and systematic, but also engaging. The students love learning the new exchange words and using them in their everyday language. The instructional strategies used throughout the unit hit other areas of need, as well, including fluency, reading comprehension, and writing. Our teachers also know that there is flexibility within the structures, so they can add in their own engagement strategies. We have seen a steady increase in our literacy scores since implementing the One Stop Word Shop structures three years ago, and that speaks volumes! As both a teacher who used the structures in my classroom and as a literacy coach who helps other teachers implement the program, I highly recommend its use in Grades 3-8.” Lindsey Greene, Curriculum Facilitator
