Vocabulary Study Book Lists for Engaging Grade Levels 3 ~ 6

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:
