Main description

Helpful instruction and plenty of practice for your child to understand the basics of vocabulary

Understanding vocabulary is essential for your child to read and write with confidence. Practice Makes Perfect: Exploring Vocabulary gives your child bite-sized explanations of the subject, with engaging exercises that keep her or him motivated and excited to learn. They can practice the vocabulary they find challenging, polish skills they've mastered, and stretch themselves to explore skills they have not yet attempted. This book features 450 words that increase in difficulty as your child proceeds through it.

This book is appropriate for a 4th grade student working above his or her grade level, or as a great review and practice for a struggling 5th or 6th grader.

Your student will learn how to:

  • Apply vocabulary rules
  • Understand meaning and usage
  • Differentiate between synonyms, antonyms, homophones, and more
  • Conquer easily confused words
