Wordly Wise by Educators Publishing Service is a popular vocabulary workbook curriculum  that  provides systematic  instruction which builds a connection between vocabulary and reading comprehension.  Several of our 5 children used it in our homeschool during fifth through ninth grade.  We liked it because it didn't take a lot of time to do the lessons, yet they were interesting and memorable. My children spent about 20 minutes on Wordly Wise for 4 days a week.

When children are approaching high school,  vocabulary instruction should focus on preparing them with strategies to unlock the word meaning that they will come across their textbooks, in literature, and in achievement and college entrance tests.

They need to develop skills & strategies that focus on vocabulary development and reading comprehension.

Wordly Wise curriculum includes exercises that develop skills in:

  • Critical thinking
  • Using a dictionary and pronunciation key
  • Word usage
  • Test taking/assessment
  • Context clues
  • Synonyms and antonyms
  • Multiple-meaning words
  • Using word parts to determine meaning:Prefixes,suffixes,Greek & Latin roots
  • Homophones
  • Picture clues and captions
  • Analogies
  • Word origins
  • Repeated exposure in many contexts
