Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary - Grade 2 Second Edition

Finally a vocabulary curriculum that is simple AND effective!

My daughter had a perfect score in vocabulary on her standardized tests this year. I am owing that vocabulary score specifically to your curriculum she used this year!

She loved using it. She thought it was actually fun. It kept her engaged. Her personal vocabulary has exploded in every day usage and it is obviously reflected in those scores – 100%! – Lindsey Stomberg

A robust vocabulary is crucial for the development of verbal and written communication and lays a foundation for reading comprehension and writing skills. Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary is designed to lay a strong foundation in bite-sized steps over 36 weeks for students in grades 1-8.

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.

Daily Lessons & Weekly Review

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 4-8 require more writing). You can see the sample of the unit review for this level by clicking the button above.

Dictionary & Thesaurus

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.

  1. R Nieser

    This is a simple way to integrate vocabulary into our lessons. I wish there was a recommended thesaurus to help my daughter find the antonyms, but overall it’s a great resource for her. I love that there is a review at the end of each week to help solidify the words into her mind.

  2. Amber Rutherford

    I absolutely love this vocabulary book. The lay-out is well done and easy for my 7 year old to navigate. She really enjoys her vocabulary word of the day and looking up the synonyms and antonyms. I loved it so much that we also got the Vocabulary book for my 13 year old who also enjoys learning new words each day.

  3. Andrea N.

    My daughter used the 2nd grade Daily Skill Building vocabulary curriculum last year. She loved it! The lay-out is very well done. It is easy to use and also easy to add it into any language arts program.

  4. Jessi Ann

    I like how the writing has two different sizes, so it gives two different focuses. It has the lined upper sections which helps focus the writer on proper technique and the smaller sections at the bottom to help the writer learn to adapt the size of their writing to the space given.

  5. Carol Hicks

    The one word a day approach with synonyms and antonyms looks like an easy, gentle way to learn vocabulary without adding a lot of extra time to your school day. Win-win for everyone.

  6. Kyra C.

    I love the repetition & simplicities as compared to other vocabulary curricula. It looks like it would be very easy to add into our day & all my kids need something like this.
