About The Program
Provide a core vocabulary for a variety of contexts
Wordly Wise® includes twelve books that teach 4,050 useful words. The program includes word lists, followed by clear, brief definitions and sentences that illustrate the meaning of the word in context. Although some of the words may appear familiar to students, one of the objectives of this series is to help bridge the gap between students’ thinking they know what a word means and actually being able to put the meaning into words. The number of new words increases as the books become more challenging. The lessons contain several exercises that reinforce learning by teaching students to use words precisely in a variety of situations. Each lesson ends with the popular Wordly Wise section that gives information on correct usage and interesting word histories, and points out common verbal pitfalls.
