Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Formerly known as Growing Your Vocabulary: Learning from Latin and Greek Roots Book B. Students need to develop the skills to improve their vocabulary, not only because state standards require it, but because nothing will make students better readers and communicators than having the ability to understand new words. With over half a million of our vocabulary books in schools nationwide, Prestwick House has been well-known for years as the #1 source for the absolute best vocabulary programs. Now we're bringing our award-winning expertise to students in 4th-6th grade. The twenty lessons in each book are designed to get students actively thinking about how words are formed by using interesting notes on the vocabulary words' origins, definitions, and use in sentences. Each lesson has a full week's worth of activities and exercises that will help students not only remember the definitions of new words but also put what they have learned into practice through creative writing assignments and fun games. Every chapter also includes an exercise that will help students learn to experiment with language by building new words from known roots or breaking down unfamiliar words, giving them invaluable practice in using their newly acquired root word knowledge. Synonym and antonym usage is plentiful, and out hilarious cartoons will reinforce what students have learned. Recommended for fifth grade. This is a student classroom edition. Teacher's editions are available from the publisher but are only sold to teachers and schools.
