Having a powerful vocabulary improves success in every subject, in school and out. Helping students to understand words in context, chapters separate vocabulary into parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives, synonyms, antonyms, words with prefixes and suffixes, word families, subject-specific words (algebra, earthquakes, civilizations, pollution, test-taking), words based on myths and legends, idioms, and more. Word boxes at the top of page are used to fill in the missing-blanks for sentences, provided definitions, writing activities, charts, reading passage questions, and other types of reading exercises. 208 pages, softcover with index and glossary. Grade 6.
