A strong (if not the strongest) predictor of academic success is the size of one's vocabulary.
That's why building a strong vocabulary is so important!

Imagine sending your students to the next grade sounding like geniuses, able to learn new information faster and easier, being able to make inferences as they read, writing with precise details.  Wouldn't that be great!  How can you do that?  By giving them the gift of a strong vocabulary.  Check out these books, written by Janet Caruthers, Ed. S., a classroom teacher, Academic Intervention Specialist and an Educational Specialist in Reading.

Word Analysis Book Cover

A workbook with answer key
for ages 9 - adult

If you will learn these interchangeable word parts, you will be amazed at how many "teachable moments" you will seize when talking with your child.  If your children learn them, they will increase their vocabulary by thousands of words, helping them become INDEPENDENT LEARNERS.  After teaching a couple of sets, watch how they will become more conscious of words they read and hear. A 4th grade student at my school was all excited when she could figure out that a character in a book felt sad because it said she was "dejected"  and the girl had learned that "ject" means to throw and "de" means down or away (thrown down or away).  My teacher friend couldn't wait to tell me.  You could send your children to the next grade sounding like geniuses!

Workbook B Front Cover

An activity pack with instructional guide
for grades 2+ (76 pages)

This is my favorite Activity Pack because it combines vocabulary development while practicing phonics and spelling rules. Brilliant! By the end of 1st grade, most students have learned the basic phonics and spelling rules, these activity pages offer opportunities to practice them while also building vocabulary. Once you have gone over the parts of the object, have your child fill in the blanks in the labels using the letter or letters from the sound bank at the bottom of the page. The correct spelling is provided in the wordbank. The objects are organized into categories: our bodies, our clothes, things around our houses, vehicles, and animals.

Workbook C Front Cover

An activity pack with instructional guide
for grades 3+ (76 pages)

In Level C Activity Pack you will find 30 images with labeling lines and a wordbank to insure correct spelling. Children fill in the blanks with the correct label. The objects are organized into categories: our bodies, our clothes, things around our houses, vehicles, and animals.
