Format: Paperback
Vocabulary is the corner stone of good reading and writing. Many smart kids cannot raise their reading level because of limited vocabulary. Unlike some other skills, a good vocabulary cannot be achieved over a short period. Young kids need to learn and read extensively to snowball their words. This book is a great help. It organizes essential third grade words in 24 lessons, and teaches them with activities and drills. Its well-designed questions help to clarify the related words that kids often misuse otherwise. The word selection is thoughtful and suitable for 3rd grade level. My child used it for learning as well as for assessment. He finished it in 2 months.

For further word practice, I found Beestar weekly ELA program has more such drills (a nice web site at [...] My child's vocabulary is improved effectively with these word lessons. His reading and writing level is rising at the same time. A solid book!

This is not designed as a homeschooling curriculum, but it works great for that purpose. It's precisely what I wanted. There are 3 pages per Lesson, which works well for a three-day-a-week study. I also like the little writing exercise each lesson includes, such a writing a letter, making an ad for a toy, making a postcard, etc., using the vocabulary words. The words are well-grouped; synonyms, compound, word roots, etc. Recommended highly for homeschooling or to supplement a child in school.

Format: Paperback
This workbook gives thorough practice through the use of synomyms, antonyms, compound words, homophones, homographs, plurals, etc., to ensure that your child will learn the meanings of the words used in each section. Through a variety of exercises that vary within and between each section, any child will become familiar with not only the word's meaning, but also the meaning of each type of word (i.e., synomym, homophone, etc). This is an excellent tool for teaching vocabulary.

I homeschool my languge impaired child. This book has fit right in with his needs. It groups words into categories that make sense. The exercises used to reinforce the words are fun. It's not as challenging as Wordly Wise, and like all vocabulary-developing workbooks I've found, it could be improved by incorporating more pictures/drawings. Nonetheless, it's a great resource.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Laura Gatannah on February 22, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book introduces a set of words then has three pages of exercises to reinforce the meaning of each word. It also introduces grammatical terms by placing the words into categories like synonyms, antonyms, compound words, root words, words from other languages, etc. This is a good one for use with a parent or teacher, too, because sometimes the definitions or synonyms/antonyms contain words my child has never heard before. The words aren't outrageously obscure, but are good alternatives for the child to learn to expand his vocabulary.

Format: Paperback
This book has been a huge help for me. I homeschool my son that is in the 3rd grade and this book has turned out to be one of the best teaching aids that I've purchased. Every topic/subject in book is covered thoroughly and in various ways. Pages are not full of just boring, repetetive activities... includes puzzles and other fun activities to help kids learn their vocab words. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for teaching materials that deal with Language Artas.

I am not a English native speaker and I've been learning English for years. Sometimes I read English articles and seem to understand mostly. What always make me pause reading is those Synonyms. One day I found this serious books. I have to admit those words on the cover I have not idea what they mean and this made me feel bad cause they are supposed to be for children. So I bought them and conquer them! The books use a very easy way to let people(children) understand and remember. The only thing is the price is kinda high, more than $10 for a very thin book(they are about 80 pages each book.) But since I couldn't find them in regular bookstores and it did develop my vacabulary in a joyful way so I love them.

I bought all four books in this series - 240 words each for 3rd to 6th grades - and use the books constantly working with foreign students from Vietnam. My bright, hard-working students need vocabulary for their upcoming college careers, but they need to start at a much lower level. The words featured are important and interesting - not baby words - and every day we see the words we've been working on in the newspaper and hear them on the radio. We use our new words whenever we're talking with each other and smile as we incorporate these more challenging words into our conversations. I'm sure native English speakers will get a lot out of these books too!)
