Excellent book for building vocabulary; I bought a copy several years before I retired in 2012. Liked it so much, I got a complete class set for the 8th graders I was working with. They loved working on this in small groups.
5 minutes to give directions, announce teams (different each time), and allow for moving desks.
25 minutes working out the lessons together (all students pitched in because there was no time to get off task).
10 minutes to report out.
5 minutes for me to orally quiz on the words (students just called out answer or, in rotation, 1 person from each team stood and answered to score a point)
I loved it when students would share a sentence from the book they were reading that used one of the words we'd studied!
Still use my original copy plus a new one to work with children I tutor.
