Three thousand carefully selected words taken from literature, textbooks, and SAT-prep books are the basis of this exciting vocabulary series that teaches new words through reading, writing, and a variety of exercises. Each lesson's alphabetized word list gives pronunciations, parts of speech, and concise definitions, and uses each word in a sentence. Interesting, engaging, and acting as a mnemonic anchor for the word, sentences are anything but boring! Comprehension of the vocabulary words is facilitated and reinforced through the five different exercises repeated in each lesson; new for the 2nd, expanded edition of Wordly Wise, reading first strategies as well as Greek and Latin roots are now included as well!
Wordly Wise 3000, Book 2 has 15 lessons with 150 words; words taught in book 2 include groom, boulder, soil, faucet, imitate, local, connect, settle, scholar and more. This 2nd Edition includes all the lessons in the previous Wordly Wise 3000 Book A as well as lessons 1-7 in Wordly Wise 3000 Book B. 121 two-tone pages, softcover. Grade 2.
