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 15-word lesson begins with a Word List. The alphabetized list gives pronunciations, parts of speech, and concise definitions, and uses each word in a sentence. Sentences are interesting, engaging, and provide a mnemonic anchor for the word. Wordly Wise 3000, Book 5 is made up of 20 lessons with 15 words in each lesson.
Words taught in Book 5 include: decline, hostile, obscure, loathe, exult, puny, stimulate, thwart, unwieldy, vertical, sparse, flail, and fume. Comprehension of the vocabulary words is facilitated and reinforced through the five different exercises repeated in each lesson.This 2nd Edition book replaces the previous Wordly Wise 3000 Book 2. The new exercise "word study" now replaces "completing the thought". 168 two-tone pages, softcover.
