You will find one or ten fun reads in this Vocabulary Study Book Lists for Engaging Grade Levels 3~6.
As an educator in the Elementary classroom, one of the easiest ways to introduce a lesson was by reading an engaging book.
A good writer can create an interesting read about anything ~ even a book about Words~ specifically addressing all the different ways words can be used in Language Acquisition.
A WORD Can Be Many WORDS
A Word can be named as
- a Part of Speech and/or several Parts of Speech
- a Synonym and/or Antonym
- a Contraction
- a Compound
- a Homophone
- a Homonym
- a Heteronym
Those last 3 can be VERY confusing….
So~ an informative and fun book is really a great way to increase the understanding of Words as well as define how some Words are similar and different from each other.
Which is why I compiled Vocabulary Study Book Lists for Engaging Grade Levels 3~6.
YES! Reading About Grammar & Vocabulary Can Be Fun!
I organized these Book Lists by Grade Levels~ interest and comprehension with the help of this wonderful book site organized and compiled by teachers~ here’s the link:
