Honors - Introduction to Wordly Wise

Posted by D. Findlay on 9/25/2017 10:00:00 PM

Students were introduced to Wordly Wise, a vocabulary building program. Lesson 1 will be completed in class this week.

Wordly Wise incorporate the use of context clues, word study (Greek and Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes, and synonyms and antonyms), reading comprehension, and writing. 

Wordly Wise words  expand critical grade-level vocabulary and improve reading comprehension.  The words are mainly Tier 2 words—high-utility, academic vocabulary—with a healthy smattering of Tier 3 words—domain-specific academic vocabulary. 

Students will complete lesson 1 in class this week. Future lessons will be completed outside of class and will be due every other Monday, beginning with lesson 2, which is due October 16.
