Category Description for Original Editions:

Combine vocabulary building with exposure to quality literature and what do you get? Vocabu-Lit! In each of the 36 lessons, a short (half-page) segment of literature is provided. The 10 master words to be studied in the lesson are shown in bold print in the reading selection. Our sample was from the 8th grade book, and featured such authors as Robert Louis Stevenson, Stephen Crane, Jack London, Arthur Conan Doyle, Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, Daniel Defoe, and Charles Dickens. Literature selections included segments from Black Beauty, Red Badge of Courage, Robinson Crusoe, Call of the Wild, and A Christmas Carol.

Vocabulary exercises include writing a definition of each word before and after looking it up in the dictionary, choosing synonyms and antonyms from a list provided, filling in the master words in analogies, and filling in the master words in a sentence. The Teacher Edition is a copy of the student book with the answers filled in. Vocabulary words chosen are appropriate for the grade level and to encourage students to increase vocabulary and knowledge of good literature simultaneously.

The folks at Perfection Learning responded to requests for a Vocabu-Lit for younger students. Now available for 2nd through 5th grade. Levels B, C, and D (2nd-4th) have appealing kid-friendly graphics, a larger font, wider spacing, fewer lessons (20-24) and word lists of 8 to 10 words but the same solid vocabulary instruction and activities. Level E (5th grade) contains 32 lessons, but follows the same general format as levels F through L.

My daughter enjoys this series—she likes the reading passages and the reinforcement activities.

My 10 yr. old son loves these kind of stories or literature and the vocabulary looks challenging but interesting.

Prior experience with older children, simple straight forward lessons.
Rashelle B on Aug 22, 2018
It's comprehensive and hits all of the core vocab and close read standards.
Natalie C on Aug 16, 2018
I like that students learn context clues, dictionary skills, and begin to use the new words in their own compositions.

I homeschool and it was recommended for a classical curriculum

Love the previous ones. The linking to literature, learning to use dictionary in a brief way in the back of the book, making word associations, using the words in different contexts. Really builds prior knowledge to new knowledge and we leave each week firmly knowing and being able to use the vocabulary words. Love it!
Emma E on Oct 15, 2016
We've homeschooled for many years, and our children have always enjoyed these books. Now, our youngest, boy age 9, particularly asked if he could get another one of these. So I happily ordered right away!
Barbara S on Aug 31, 2016
I like the idea of integrating vocabulary instruction with my reading block.
toni p on Feb 18, 2016
Wanted vocabulary to be more meaningful in studies. <br />Why study new words by just definition? This incorporates real stories with new vocabulary words.

Great resource for language development
Great resource for language development and meeting the goals for literature across all genres. Have used with language learning disabled students who need shorter reading assignments but exposure to good literature.
