The Vocabulary Workbook for 6th Grade:
Weekly Activities to Boost Your Word Power,
by Kelly Anne Mclellan
Juvenile Nonfiction/Language Arts
When you consider vocabulary acquisition, it may seem daunting at first for young learners. The Vocabulary Workbook for 6th Grade is great to go over that hurdle without pressure.
And the trick is to focus first on high-frequency words, which this book does with 180 Tier Two words that sixth graders are expected to know, to make them stronger readers and writers.
These words are presented throughout 36 lessons.
In each, you find 5 words in bold used in a sentence.
Then the student is asked to define these words, like in this example:
Or to reuse them inside a prepared sentence, or to practice them through some other activity: find the root, a synonym, an antonym, or ask an adult a question using some of these words.
These words have their definition and pronunciation in the 2nd part of the book, followed by the answer key.
VERDICT: Perfect book to efficiently improve the vocabulary of young learners, or for foreigners learning English as Second Language.

In full compliance with FTC Guidelines, I received this book free of charge from the publisher through The Callisto Publisher’s Club. I was in no way compensated for this post as a reviewer, and the thoughts are my own.
How neat to see a book like this reviewed, Emma! My favourites are Vocabulary from Classical Roots, Critical Thinking Detective (Vocabulary), and Book of Roots. There’s lots of amazing stuff at rainbowresource.com but perhaps you’ve already discovered it! Have a great day!
Thanks Cleo. I reviewed a lot of similar books last year, published by Rockridge Press. I still had a pile I never got to do, so it’s about time. Since Covid unfortunately, they only offer e-review copies. So I won’t have new ones for a while. I review these books and give them to a large family with 7 children, homeschooled. Ecopies don’t work for them.
Thanks, as I didn’t grow up in an English country, i don’t know these reference books, they all sound really good. And I’m sure some other readers coming here will appreciate

Well, I only knew of “Word Power Made Easy” and the picture-book thesauruses that used to come out — but I guess neither of them exactly fits sixth grade level!
I didn’t grow up in an English country and never knew about Word Power Made Easy. I just went to have a look, sounds actually very good, thanks!
