Mrs. Wordsmith Storyteller's Word a Day (Grades 3-5)
Why learn new words? A student’s reading, writing, and speaking skills drastically improve with a robust vocabulary! In minutes a day, these vocabulary words with zany character illustrations will capture kids’ attention, boost their understanding, and help them to remember new words better. This sturdy, hardcover flipbook containing 180 words stands to display pages and stays securely in place with the attached toggle that fastens between the front and back cover. The spiral binding makes it easy to flip the page and discover the new word for the day, which is in large-scale font below the colorful illustration. In the smaller font below the word is the definition, part of speech, and an example sentence that’s easy for kids to understand. On the back side of the display is info relating to that word, including three synonyms, an excerpt of literature with the word in it, and a fun “tell a story” section, featuring a story-starter sentence with the word in it for the students to finish creatively. While the exaggerated characters and illustrations bring a chuckle, some parents may appreciate knowing that one character, Bearnice, typically features a crop top and low riding pants that don’t always fit her very well.

Mrs. Wordsmith is an award-winning company who believes that educational resources should be just as thrilling as the movies and games that kids play! Together with Hollywood artists, game designers, teachers, and other experts, they created a product to captivate and engage children, while accelerating their reading skills. Advertised as being “the silliest learning company” … and I think they live up to it! Each learning product features their trademark gang of goofy animal characters in outlandish situations, causing kids to giggle and engage so that they learn and remember. The same characters are used in all the books but are depicted as children in lower-level books (PK-2) while the higher-level books (3-6) show them grown-up. The exaggerated characters and illustrations bring a chuckle, but some parents may appreciate knowing that one character, Bearnice, typically features a crop top and low riding pants that don’t always fit her very well in the older level books. Several of Mrs. Wordsmith’s products use QR codes that kids can scan to hear proper pronunciation of sounds or words.
These materials cover both writing and grammar, but they are more supplemental in scope.
