Category Description for Wordly Wise - Original Edition:

The original edition of Wordly Wise is also still available, although the tests have gone out of print. It has been preferred by some homeschoolers because it did not include the narrative passage found in the 3000 series editions. As you would expect, graphics and formatting in this edition are dated and there is less use of the accent color. The word lists (different from later editions) require the student to supply the dictionary type material for each listing (located in a glossary in the back of the book).

The A, B, and C books have between 10-12 lessons, each with 8-12 words. Lessons present words and brief definitions, include exercises in word usage, and culminate with a simple crossword puzzle. 12-20 new words are introduced in each lesson in higher levels. Varied exercises give students experience in defining words, including multiple meanings, and using the word in correct context. At each level, Exercise A requires the student to choose the phrase best fitting the meaning of the word as used in a phrase. In exercise B, the student must identify the sentence in which the word is used incorrectly. Exercise C (Levels 1-6) has students replacing italicized word in sentences with one of his vocabulary words, giving practice in actually writing the word in context. Exercises D and E in each lesson review the current and earlier lessons, providing reinforcement of previously studied words (use it or lose it!). In fact, each word occurs subsequently from 5 to 15 times in each book. Beginning in Book 4, there is an additional exercise dealing with roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Books 7-9 also include exercises with analogies, connotations, and literal and metaphorical usage. Each lesson in all levels ends with a discussion of words with interesting histories, distinctions between words commonly confused, and clarifications of possible misconceptions. In all, the 12 books teach 4,050 useful words, carefully selected to provide a core vocabulary useful in a variety of verbal contexts, appropriate to the student's level of experience and writing ability, and keyed to the level of available reading material. Levels 1-3 have word glossaries containing definitions. After level three, students will need a separate dictionary to look up vocabulary words on their own. Separate tests have students match words with definitions, find synonyms and antonyms, answer true or false, fill in blanks, and replace phrases with the correct vocabulary word. These provide an easy-to-score assessment of your child's grasp of the vocabulary learned at each level and give one test for each chapter in the book (30-40 questions each), as well as a cumulative final exam (100 questions). Tests are sold independently for most levels and include an answer key.

I have used this older series for years and like the variety of practice formats. My student don’t just memorize meanings but are able to apply in context.

summer spelling review
Jane D on May 15, 2020
I used it when I was homeschooled as a child, and I'm sure my daughter will love it.

Very solid program that our third grader really has enjoyed.
Laura B on Aug 20, 2019
Used Wordly Wise C and was successful with my student so following the original. This student has had trouble with the Wordly Wise 3000 reading comprehension at the end, but Wordly Wise C has her enjoying doing vocab makes her feel successful and she's comprehending more. Hoping that following the original will increase her confidence and usage of vocabulary.

We are trying out the older edition because it doesn't have the essay and complete sentence answer portion at the end of each lesson.

"My mom had us work out of these when she homeschooled us many moons ago. I am so glad I found the original version to use with my boys. I've tried and don't care for the new 3000 version. I'm excited about these. Yay. :) "
Kirstin G on Mar 9, 2017
"Wordly Wise has been very helpful in our kids learning terminology. It uses the words in different ways and gives lots of practice with each word. You can use the older versions to avoid using Common Core."
Anna M on Feb 11, 2017
Taking a chance on this one; hoping it gives a good indication of what the kids have learned from the lessons.

Excellent vocabulary resource!
Our family has long appreciated the content and layout of the original Wordly Wise series. It is both user friendly, for homeschool or brick and mortar, and each lesson can be easily divided up into segments to spread over the week. I especially love how the series gives the history and linguistic roots of many of the words or word parts. We use the crossword puzzle at the end of each lesson to test the kids at the end of the week. They write their tests in a separate coil notebook. :)

Thorough, direct and to the point
Wordly Wise is a vocabulary program that is direct and to the point. It doesn't have frills and colorful pictures; rather, it is very simple and straightforward. Every lesson follows the same format, which provides much needed predictability for my son. After every three lessons, it also reviews words learned in prior chapters. I plan on using Wordly Wise every year.
