Wordly Wise C

Wordly Wise by Kenneth Hodkinson, is one of our oldest vocabulary programs. Many years ago, we introduced a new edition, Wordly Wise 3000, to support your changing classroom needs. In 2003 we added teacher's guides and reproducible tests helping you prepare your students for standardized testing. The original edition, Wordly Wise, will not be revised or updated. We provide this information to help you plan for upcoming school years and suggest you consider Wordly Wise 3000.

Wordly Wise, Book C is made up of 12 lessons with 8–12 words in each lesson. Words taught in Book C include tenant, barge, ornament, whittle, kiosk, frustrate, appetite, sheaf, moat, and prod. The presentation of the vocabulary in this book differs slightly from the previous two books in the series. Now the different parts of speech are listed before the definition. As in Book B, more than one meaning of a word is presented when appropriate, and the number of drawings is decreased to allow for expanded text. Book C has the same true/false and Hidden Message exercises found in Books A and B, but it has a larger crossword puzzle for every two lessons. Book C also contains an additional exercise that requires the student to rewrite a sentence using a vocabulary word in place of an underlined phrase.

With 12 books and over 4050 words, Wordly Wise helps bridge the gap between students’ thinking they know what a word means and actually being able to put the meaning into words.
