Word Wisdom will help students to unlock vocabulary in context as they discover the meaning of new words and phrases through using context clues and analyzing meaningful word parts.
Students will activate prior knowledge, use context clue strategies, and analyze roots as they learn to interpret unfamiliar words in any context. The words chosen for each level are "Tier Two" academic words that were selected based on word frequency studies; these words are unlikely to be learned through conversation but appear in written text across subjects.
This student book provides a year's worth of lessons that will help students unlock the meaning of 270 new vocabulary words through 9 thematic units with 30 words per unit. Units include individual lessons that include a reading passage followed by a context clues strategy and then "Unlock the Meanings," "Process the Meanings," and "Apply what you've learned" exercises. A review section and a practice test are given at the end of each unit.
This Grade 5 course includes 9 units on the themes of: food, movement, thinking, communication, measurement, work and money, language and writing, legal matters, and good and bad. Concepts covered include using context clues, learning specific Greek and Latin roots such as jud, pos, prob, pair, feit, graph and others, and developing specific reference skills .
