Product Description

Words Are Wonderful: An Interactive Approach to Vocabulary, a three-part series for grades 3-5, is a collaborative, research-based approach to building vocabulary skills. As students discover the joy and power of words, they learn that words are made up of meaningful parts - roots, prefixes, and suffixes - and how to unlock the meaning of unfamiliar words.

Words Are Wonderful is based on research and state standards documents that affirm the importance of integrated and systematic word study with ample oral-language practice and interactive activities and exercises to build vocabulary and vocabulary skills. The series also emphasizes context clues and basic word elements to help students make connections among words and infer the meaning of unfamiliar words. A glossary of terms is included at the back of each book.

Book 3 builds students' vocabulary skills through independent and collaborative exercises and activities on dictionary entries, word origins, context clues, similes and metaphors, idioms, compound words, onomatopoeia, alliteration, words with multiple meanings, synonyms and antonyms, prefixes, roots, suffixes, analogies, and footnotes. The selections are drawn from science (microscopes and microorganisms, protozoa, the blue whale, Venus flytrap plants); historical reports on ancient Greece and the Great Wall of China; biographies of Langston Hughes, Mildred Benson, Harriet Tubman, Susan B. Anthony, and Clara Barton; geography (Australia and the Great Barrier Reef; stories (folktale and legend); and poetry. This 24-lesson book is designed to meet state standards for vocabulary development. Every sixth lesson is a review. Grade 5.

    My nine year used this series as an independent study. He needed little assistance from me and enjoyed working alone with great success. This created a sense of accomplishment which created confidence. It is very good for building vocabulary and developing language skills.
