Students begin each lesson with a fun and entertaining story. Each story introduces 15 new vocabulary words which become the basis for the week's lesson.
The captivating stories often use a playful twist to engage the student further. The stories are fun to read and are purposeful. Students are more apt to learn new words when they see them in the context of sentences or in the context of an entertaining story. The endearing art of Ben Hatke increases the significance of the stories and helps increase the students interest and engagement. Crossword puzzles, a popular and rewarding way to recall the words students have used, are part of each weeks lesson. Full color. Answer key included in the back of the book. 8.5 x 11 inches. Softcover. 105 pages.
