Working With Words
This vocabulary program is inexpensive, easy to use, has plenty of review of words learned in previous lessons, and includes tests at no extra charge, being part of the student text. Lessons are varied, although each begins with a matching exercise to connect the words to be studied with their definitions. Other vocabulary programs we've reviewed or used required students to page back and forth, looking up each word in a separate glossary or dictionary - which our children quickly tired of. While they may have to look up some words in the matching process, many will be discernible given the choices, connotations, etc. There are 42, 2-page lessons in all. Teacher's keys ares answers to the exercises and tests if you feel you need extra help.
