    "That Is To Say..." (The ABC Book)
    Brief Description: I personally hate giving tests for vocabulary!  Vocabulary must have context to be meaningful, and to be learnt.  "That Is To Say is a remedy for vocabulary without context.  For most of the year, students will learn (or be exposed to) 134 vocabulary words.  Once exposed, students will create an original childrens' book using 26 of the 134 vocabulary words.
