Category Description for Wordly Wise 3000 (3rd Ed.):

Book numbers correspond with grade levels (unlike the 1st edition where it was necessary to add 3 to the book number to get the grade level). Book 2 includes all the lessons in Book A (1st edition) and lessons 1-7 from Book B (1st edition). It has 15 lessons and 150 vocabulary words. Book 3 includes lessons 8-10 from Book B (1st edition) and all lessons from Book C (1st edition). It also has 15 lessons with 150 words and contains some Greek and Latin root exercises. Students learn 300 new words a year in Books 4-12. Books K and 1 were new with the 2nd edition of the program, and work just as well with the 3rd edition.

The Student Workbooks contain 20 lessons each with fifteen words. Each lesson includes a Word List with complete dictionary type of entry information, a Finding Meanings exercise (choose two phrases to form a sentence that correctly uses a word), the Just the Right Word exercise (replace a phrase with a single word), an Applying Meanings exercise (using words in context), a Word Study exercise (covers synonyms, antonyms, suffixes, prefixes, and analogies), and a Passage (classic and contemporary authors) with follow-up questions.

The Teacher Resource Books include teacher's guides for the lessons, reproducible tests and reviews, vocabulary activities (including word webs and semantic maps), options for group or individual instruction, pacing options, and answer keys for the tests and workbooks. Tests are designed to prepare students for standardized tests; the format is largely multiple-choice. There are tests for each lesson as well as cumulative midterms and finals. At the upper levels (grade 9-12), each test also features a "SAT Sneak Preview" section in which additional practice is given in preparation for standardized testing. [3rd edition Tests have a double column format while 2nd edition tests are single column.] If you don't think an intensive, thorough teacher guide is necessary, non-reproducible Test Books (with answers) and Answer Keys (for student workbooks) are available separately. [The 3rd edition Answer Keys also have double columns with one column per lesson (much easier to read).]

Have an auditory learner? By customer request, we also now offer Audio CD sets that correlate to levels 2-12. These include recordings of each word list to aid pronunciation, along with definitions and comprehension questions, and all reading passages. There are three CDs each for Grades 2-3, and 5 CDs for each level for grades 4-12.

The structure of Books K and 1 are a bit different. These vocabulary-building activities include selecting the correct picture in the workbook while the parent reads a story aloud from the teacher pack. Concept and Picture Cards introduce key concepts and words, and the activities prepare students for the kind of content-area reading that they will encounter in later grades. The unique, two-week lesson plans in these beginning books teach and reinforce words and concepts in 20-25 minutes a day. Teacher Packs for K and 1 include extensive lesson plans, Concept and Picture Cards, read-aloud stories and poems, extension and challenge activities, blackline masters, formal and informal assessments for each lesson, assessment checklists and more.

Currently, Books 2-12 are available in both 2nd and 3rd editions. Differences between these two editions are minimal. In the 3rd edition there is more introductory information in the Student Books including web addresses for supplementary materials (word lists, quick check questions, and games). The print font in the 3rd edition books is slightly larger and there is more white space (resulting in more pages per book). Accent colors are used in both editions but seem more liberal in the 3rd. Color schemes are typically the same but changed in some book levels. Word lists are identical lesson by lesson between the editions with one exception: Book 4 has several words that have been eliminated while others were added.




Category Description for Wordly Wise 3000 (All Editions):

Wordly Wise works. It's a vocabulary-building program that grows with the student, and makes vocabulary building interesting and entertaining. All editions of Wordly Wise share a similar format giving interesting word histories, dealing with usage issues, and exposing common usage pitfalls. There are 20 lessons in each level plus five review lessons. Typical lessons contain an alphabetized list of fifteen words with a brief entry for each including part of speech, concise definition, and proper usage of the word in the context of an interesting sentence that provides a mnemonic anchor for the word. Following are activity sections (which vary slightly with the edition). Crossword puzzles and Hidden Message puzzles are used for review. The overall word list for the series consists of 3000 words; their selection based on frequency, grade-level literature, textbooks, and SAT-prep books.

Wordly Wise 3000 3rd Edition (2-12)

Book numbers correspond with grade levels. Book 2 includes all the lessons in Book A (1st ed.) and lessons 1-7 from Book B (1st ed.). It has 15 lessons and 150 vocabulary words. Book 3 includes lessons 8-10 from Book B (1st edition) and all lessons from Book C (1st ed.). It also has 15 lessons with 150 words and contains some Greek and Latin root exercises. Students learn 300 new words a year in Books 4-12.

The Student Workbooks contain 20 lessons each with fifteen words. Each lesson includes a Word List with complete dictionary type of entry information, a Finding Meanings exercise (choose two phrases to form a sentence that correctly uses a word), the Just the Right Word exercise (replace a phrase with a single word), an Applying Meanings exercise (using words in context), a Word Study exercise (covers synonyms, antonyms, suffixes, prefixes, and analogies), and a Passage (classic and contemporary authors) with follow-up questions. As far as reading content, although Wordly Wise has always been a secular program, many customers have found the content to be increasingly "liberal" and "humanistic" with the newer editions. If you prefer religious or conservative content, you may wish to opt for a different program.

The Teacher Resource Books include teacher's guides for the lessons, reproducible tests and reviews, vocabulary activities (including word webs and semantic maps), options for group or individual instruction, pacing options, and answer keys for the tests and workbooks. Tests are designed to prepare students for standardized tests; the format is largely multiple-choice. There are tests for each lesson as well as cumulative midterms and finals. Tests have a double column format.

My daughter has a really large vocabulary naturally however while she will know bizarre, off the wall, or college level words she often is missing the ones more common for her age so looking to fill in gaps.

He is going to have a lot of reading this school year. He has to increase his vocabulary as well as learning how to spell his words correctly.

Do you need the teacher guide?
A shopper on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it’s absolutely necessary to have the teachers guide for K and 1, as well as the vocab cards. There are stories with the vocabulary woven in that you read to the student throughout the 2 week lesson as well as instruction for the practices in the student workbook.

Vocabulary for a Reluctant Student
My six-year-old daughter is a reluctant homeschooling student, but she asks for vocabulary every day because of this book and vocabulary package. The concept cards and vocabulary cards are colorful and fun, the story is engaging, and the activities keep her interested. The one drawback for our family is that the stories revolve around kiddos going to public school, so that doesn't always mesh well with our homeschooling.

Vocabulary book which works
English is not native language for our family so I was looking for material which would strengthen the boys' language skills and vocabulary. My sons, 5 and 7 years, love this book! They recognize and use the words they have learned in other contexts as well, so this does work. They even surprised me and have memorized the poems this book includes. I recommend this book to any child who does not have rich vocabulary. Children don't need to know how to read or write to complete their exercises and that is also one thing I appreciate at this level. The teacher's edition is a must to complete this book.
