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.

Vocabu-Lit has become our favorite vocabulary word learning option! Each lesson begins with an excerpt from a real book with vocabulary words in bold This is followed by several exercises (about 7) for practice beginning with the definitions The practice exercises vary for each lesson and for the different levels which keeps it interesting and developmentally appropriate Students use the words with synonyms/antonyms analogies words in context puzzles acrostics sentence/essay writing and more The book includes 4 review lessons throughout My kids have been able to do these independently and usually end up searching for the books in the library intrigued by the sample text Even my most active child (currently grade 2) who has a hard time focusing is able to complete the short exercises daily although I do break the definition writing activity into separate days for her I believe it has helped them learn to not only understand more words but to think critically and problem solve The teacher's manual is not necessary in the lower levels (A-D) but was helpful after that The answer keys are identical to the student workbooks just with the answers typed in
