Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary - Grade 1 Second Edition

Are you looking for an independent open-and-go curriculum that will enhance your student’s vocabulary? Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary is a complete, 36-week vocabulary curriculum for grades 1-7. This simple, straight-forward approach to vocabulary building is easy to use and encourages independent study. The format is designed to be flexible — meaning  you can assign more than one word a day if you wish to complete it sooner.

Volume 1 is for 1st grade; it uses dashed primary lines for younger students and age appropriate unit reviews.

Each week presents four new words (one per day) with a weekly review on day five. Your student will be asked to define the new word using a dictionary, use it in a sentence, and list synonyms and antonyms. Every 4th week includes an additional review using the most recent 16 words studied plus a short writing assignment (for grades 1-3 this is 2 sentences and an area to draw an illustration. Grades 4-7 require more writing). You can see the sample of the unit review for this level by clicking the button above.

For your convenience, we include a glossary of words by week and order studied. Students may use either the glossary for their daily assignments or a dictionary. We recommend the Webster’s For Students Dictionary/Thesaurus set as well as thesaurus.com and dictionary.com.

Vocabulary Cards

There are two formats for the Vocabulary Cards that accompany each Volume of Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary. The first format includes the word, along with the week and day for easy reference, as well as the definition. The second card has the word, along with the week and day and blank lines for the student to write the definition. The Vocabulary Cards can be laminated for durability and used for retention and review.

Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary is available in 7 volumes:

    We currently use the Vocabulary Level 1 and I love the simplicity of it. I will definitely be purchasing additional levels as we get closer to finishing. I have also been looking at the US Geography for next year.

    We LOVE the daily skill builders for vocab and spelling. I used this all year with my 1st and 5th grader! It is one of those perfect things I can hand to them to have them do on their own. They have been able to get more vocabulary words and actually use them !!!
    Great open and go!!

    My daughter needed to build her vocabulary for writing and this resource has helped her build her vocabulary quickly. Along with building vocabulary, this also built up her dictionary and thesaurus skills as well. And critical thinking when she has to figure out how to find synonyms and antonyms when they aren’t easily found. I love the variety of skills being learned in this one quick resource.

  4. Anissa

    I really like that kids can work on this independently and that each day they focus on one word. It’s very easy to incorporate this into our daily routine.

    I enjoy that it’s simple but effective!
