Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary - Grade 3 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.

No Teacher’s Guide Necessary

    Just what I was looking for.

  2. Stephanie Schnable

    We just started using vocabulary, and my son is loving it!! I may add the spelling in for next year too! Thanks for making it so easy!

  3. Kristi B.

    My children have autism and get confused when the curriculum is too busy or have unnecessary additions. This is perfect. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I usually make a lot of my own curriculum for my children. This would be one thing I wouldn’t have to adapt to their needs.
