It covers a vast amount of words that 10th grade students should know. By making use of several different exercises using the same word it helps to reinforce the meaning of each word. The language arts course we used left me feeling that she was still lacking in her knowledge of vocabulary and spelling, etc. I'm so glad we discovered Wordly Wise 3000! We intend to use these sets in both her 11th & 12th grades as well!
This is the second book of the series that we're using. My daughter loves book 9 and can't wait to start book 10 in a couple of weeks. She's been writing stories and, not only has her vocabulary stretched, but her writing has improved. I love that the exercises are all about proper usage. That really helps.
Great series! I have used these starting with Book 5 or 6 and they are great for vocabulary development. This is not just a "spelling" book! The exercises truly help students comprehend the words & allows them to use them in the future in their own writing!
