Give Vocabulary & Dictionary Skills a Workout
The activities in this 28-lesson book give students practice in finding new word meanings and alternate words to use in place of tired, repetitive ones. Each exercise requires the use of the dictionary. When completed, students should be able to replace worn-out words with more precise synonyms. They will know how to find alternate words in the dictionary, better understand multiple meanings, and maybe even discover a fascination for unusual words, their origin and meanings. 32 pages each.
