Reviews - What do customers think about Wordly Wise 3000 Grade 2 Student Book - 2nd Edition?
Good book. Challenging for a 3rd grader. Aug 5, 2007
This is a good book. Many interesting examples and short articles. Some questions for short articles are fairly challenging for a 3rd grader. I think this is a better book than the "week-by-week homework for building comprehension and fluency", which is much easier. I bought a wordly wise 3000 book B last summer and it had a crossword for each lesson. It was more interesting. But this book has more lessons for almost the same price. I can not complain.
Excellent vocabulary building/enrichment tool Nov 20, 2002
I bought this workbook for my precocious 9-year old, and she jumped right into the first chapter and enjoyed it immensely. Each chapter begins with a list of about 20 vocabulary words, which are defined. Several forms of the word are offered as well as different meanings.
Then the student is asked to perform various multiple choice and sentence completion activities using the words in context. Finally a passage using the words is introduced, after which the student is asked to answer questions that require an understanding of the vocabulary words and the passage.
This book is just the right level for my fourh-grader, but is probably intended for use in grades 5-6.
My only criticism is that not all definitions are given for a vocabulary word. For example, the word "pedestrian" is defined as a noun, but the meaning of the adjective is not provided. Perhaps the author felt this was too advanced for the level, but I disagree.
All-in-all, this is an effective tool for building your child's vocabulary. It's certainly enjoyable for those children who love to learn new words.
Hard Work Goes Far Jun 12, 2001
In my school Book 2 is fifth grade material. We do the exercises for one reason, to learn. Wordly Wise Book 2, is a book based on vocabulary. it is divided into chapters, which are divided into exactly 30 lessons. Exersice A would be multiple choice, ex: to intercept a letter (a)plan to write(b)write in code(c)deliver(d)seize on its way Exersice B would be multiple choice as to which sentence states or uses the word wrongly. Exercise C is a sentence that synonoms to replace the word, and you would write the word that on the list would replaceit. Exersise D is a crossword puzzel. At the end of this workbook, there is a glossary, which has all vocabulary words in all of the lessons. I recomend this book because I believe it has really helped me this year, I have thrived as a student and as a person.
