Scholastic
BUILDING YOUR VOCABULARY, the newest addition to the Scholastic Guide series, is an essential resource that provides children with skills they need in order to approach and learn new vocabulary words.

Using language arts standards from states around the nation as a guide, BUILDING YOUR VOCABULARY familiarizes kids with word origins, word parts, context clues, synonyms and antonyms, and other critical skills. Rather than a book of vocabulary lists to memorize, this title gives kids tools they can use throughout their lives.
Kids will discover that English is made up of words from many different languages. They'll also find out about eponyms--people and places that become words.
Next students will discover the meanings of common prefixes, suffixes, and roots so that they can approach new words more confidently. There are also sections on homonyms, word families, shades of meaning, dictionaries, and thesauruses. All in a fun and entertaining format.
