Each lesson has a full weeks worth of activities and exercises that will help students not only remember the definitions of new words but also put what they have learned into practice through creative writing assignments and fun games. Every chapter also includes an exercise that will help students learn to experiment with language by building new words from known roots or breaking down unfamiliar words, giving them invaluable practice in using their newly acquired root word knowledge. Synonym and antonym usage is plentiful, and out hilarious cartoons will reinforce what students have learned. Recommended for sixth grade. This is a student classroom edition.
