Vocabulary is something many students glean from literature and their various subjects, but once a child really gets writing, a parent/teacher may notice words being repeated or bland variety. This is a time to supplement your language arts to help grow a childs vocabulary. These supplemental workbooks from The Critical Thinking Co. each have 15 lessons. Elementary has 10 words per lesson, while the Middle School version has 12. This may not seem like a lot, but the goal here is retention and application. You dont want so many words that kids quickly forget half of them. Each lesson has the same format, starting with a word list showing the part of speech, pronunciation, another word in the same family (abolish/abolition), a simple definition and several synonyms. You could go a step further and have a student make an index card for each word. The first exercise has sentences where you choose the correct word of 3 to fill in the blank. The next has a word bank/box at the top of the page and you choose words to fill the blanks in several sentences. Then comes a story with blanks and a word bank at the top. The next exercise gets tricky with a word scramble to match a word in a sentence. There are still 2 more exercises for that same word list: a matching the word/idiom/phrase with the vocabulary words and finally one where the student is completely writing a definition from memory. This last exercise could be used as a quiz if you desire. All answers are in the back. 172 perforated pages, SC. ~ Ruth
