Each lesson in these books introduces about twelve new words and contains several exercises plus a Wordly Wise section, which discusses words with interesting histories and distinguishes between words that are commonly confused. Exercises A, B, and C use these new words in context, teach multiple meanings of words, and give practice using the words in sentences. Exercise D reviews the lesson and earlier lessons. Correct completion of Exercise E gives part of a quotation, poem, or riddle. A glossary is provided in Books 1-3. The emphasis in the selection of words has been on providing a core vocabulary useful in a variety of verbal contexts, appropriate to students' level of experience and writing ability, and keyed to the level of reading material available to them.

Review 1 for Student Book: Grade 4, Wordly Wise Series
Date:July 25, 2008
I have just started using this book and my 3rd grader LOVES it. We use it for both spelling & vocabulary. He looks forward to doing it & learning the meaning of the words. He has always excelled in reading, but his vocabulary wasn't keeping up. This is helping him greatly.
