I was approached by a publisher who offered to have this workbook published, but I chose to make it available here instead!
EXPAND is a FUN, ENGAGING and CHALLENGING way for students to acquire more vocabulary. The method consists of a SIX STEP PROCESS to mastering new words.
The entire workbook consists of 12 UNITS which each introduce 10 NEW WORDS plus their SYNONYMS and ANTONYMS. This means that your students will master OVER 120 WORDS selected from the MOST FREQUENT WORDS found in the SAT TESTS (admission tests for colleges in the U.S.).
When you purchase the entire workbook, you receive BONUS CROSSWORD PUZZLES to even further ensure your students' mastery of these words.
Students and teachers are sure to enjoy these QUIET and INDEPENDENT LEARNING activities which are PERFECT for FRIDAY AFTERNOON CLASSES! Students usually need to work a little at home over the weekend to complete part 6, the sentence writing.This is perfect because parents love to see their children writing more complex sentences and using new words.
These vocab building worksheets can ALSO BE USED AS AN INTERNET ACTIVITY with students using the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary and Thesaurus or the link to the INTERACTIVE TEXT under the PRACTICE tab at http://www.eslquebec.com
