A wide vocabulary is critical for good reading comprehension, higher-level writing skills, and high standardized test placement. Multiple-choice vocabulary lessons often don't give students the skills they need to figure out words in context; however, Vocabulary: An Elementary Approach is a literature-based series that actively engages students in the learning process.
In each book, students begin with 10-20 vocabulary words (taken from the literature) that they're likely to encounter in other contexts. Before reading the book, students take a pretest and record the results in "Word Logs," which require figuring out meanings from context, using a dictionary, and other reading skills. Students will also study the root words, prefixes, and suffixes of each new word. A variety of reinforcement activities are included; students conclude with a post-test.
This workbook is designed be used alongside the book "The Sign of the Beaver" by Elizabeth George Speare, which is not included and must be obtained separately. Designed for the elementary grades 1-5; these workbooks can be utilized with guided or independent reading.
