Wordly Wise

Our Language Arts curriculum includes 20 Wordly Wise lessons. We always complete parts A and B of the Wordly Wise workbook, and it's usually due on Wednesday morning. We take the lessons in order, so it's easy to find which Wordly Wise lesson comes next.

The list and exercises for each lesson can be found on wordlywise3000.com. For example, here's the list for WW2:

aroma            cluster            cultivate            introduce
beverage        combine         equivalent          purchase
bland             consume         export               tropical
brittle             crave              extract

Scroll down for each of the 20 lessons.

Wordly Wise Stories
For each Wordly Wise lesson students are to write an original story, correctly using at least 5 of the list words in their story. Here's an example. Be sure to bold or underline the list words in your story:

The Vacation
by Mr. Schwan

The aroma of his dark-colored beverage was rather bland. He wasn't sure if it was his nose, or was he really just sleeping? When he tried to combine his keen skills with his unusual luck, he found was able to extract the straw from his drink without making any ripples in the dark liquid. "This tropical vacation is going very well", he thought with pride.

Turning in Stories Digitally
Students write their stories in Google Classroom. 

Friday Tests
WW Tests are on Fridays. Students are encouraged to use practice tests during the week, beginning Mondays, to prepare for the end-of-week test. Practice tests can be found on quizlet.com.
