The earlier your students begin working on developing vocabulary, the stronger their reading and writing skills will be in the future. Set your 4th through 6th-grade students on the right path with Growing Your Vocabulary.

Each book organizes vocabulary words by Latin and Greek roots with similar meanings and explains the conventions that govern word formation.

Once students understand the basics of word construction, they'll be prepared to tackle more challenging words with aplomb.

Challenge your students with 10 exercises in each chapter that reinforce word meanings and give students essential writing practice.

The Teacher's Edition for each book lays out a five-day lesson plan for each chapter and gives additional advice on helping English language learners and students currently working below grade level. Exercise answers are also included.
