Vocabulary is the basis of skillful reading and is essential to precise writing. Many vocabulary workbooks have context clues exercises, but mine employs only words at the high end of the eighth grade vocabulary list and has sentences that are engaging and carry a valuable thematic element as well as challenging students to use context clues to arrive at a correct response. It is sure to do the job and to please. My goal is to make reading an irresistible passion for all children. Help me on my quest!
