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

In the 3rd edition of Wordly Wise 3000 book numbers correspond with typical grade levels (unlike the original edition, Wordly Wise, and the first edition of the 3000 series where it was necessary to add three 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 3000 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 Student Book exercises. 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. 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.

Have an auditory learner? We offer Audio CD sets that correlate to levels 2-12 (no longer available for some levels). These include recordings of each word list to aid pronunciation, along with definitions and comprehension questions, and all reading passages. The number of CDs in each grade level set varies.

The structure of the Kindergarten and 1st Grade Books 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. At the Kindergarten and 1st Grade levels, these Teacher Packs are a "must-have."

Wordly Wise 3000 works. It's a vocabulary-building program that grows with the student, and makes vocabulary acquisition interesting and entertaining. Current editions (4th and 3rd) of Wordly Wise 3000 share a similar format giving interesting word histories, dealing with usage issues, and exposing common usage pitfalls.

These include 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. Course components include a Student Book, an Answer Key, a Test Book, and a Teacher Resource Book. Levels K and 1 of both editions differ a bit from Grades 2-12 levels.

We used Wordly Wise Book 1 this past year and it is one of my son's favorite lessons. Decided to stick with the same program since he liked it.
Kathleen W on Jun 29, 2016
I love Wordly Wise for my 5th grader who just started it a few months ago and I am so pleased and love the fact that it is focused on vocabulary, there is a lot of repetition in the use of the words but in different scenarios with sentences, games, questions, stories, etc. His spelling and comprehension has improved a lot and I want that for my other kids as well.
Kimberly K on Feb 2, 2016
Had experience with Wordly Wise before. Great curriculum.

How many lessons does this have? Is it only 15 or is it 32?
Becky on Aug 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Book 2 has 15 lessons but it also has a few weeks of review built in as well. I think it's a nice pace for that age.

Encourages comprehension and thinking
I especially like the comprehension questions for each piece of reading that the students do. The questions are never directly answered in the text, but the answers are there if you look for them and think! At first my students were frustrated that they could not find the exact answers, but now they are starting to enjoy the thinking that is required. They are learning to read more carefully and pick up things that are not immediately obvious. Book 2 seems to be about right for my third graders. I think it would be difficult for most second graders.

Helps develop a broader vocabulary
I have used this series with one student who is now in book 5 and am now beginning book 2 with my second student. I think these books are a valuable supplement to a language arts program and have helped my kids understand word usage and semantics as well as enable them to craft their own clear definitions of words. The work can be done independently. Added bonus is that the format helps them prepare for any standardized testing if your state requires it. My kids have learned some interesting and useful facts from the non-fiction reading selections. My only complaint is that some the reading passages lean towards an secular perspective.
