Having no context for that worksheet, my daughter and I didn't quite know what to make of it. Give your child a breather on the test so they can expend more mental effort on the reading comprehension questions. Although much of the vocabulary is new, the lesson uses the terms frequently, with illustration, and in context so that the words soon become familiar.
My kids really enjoy it. She has been working on Earth Science but has access to Life and Space. It was definitely worth the money, and more than once I sighed with regret that such educational tools were not available when I myself was in school.
My son has some learning and independence issues and Plato allows him to listen over and over to the material, ask questions of me, and take many practice tests to be sure he learns the material. The Packet 60 minutes One reason I think that Wordly Wise works is that the packet gives the student the opportunity to look at the word in different ways.
Even my five year old loved to cuddle up next to his brother to see the lessons. Many of the answers in the published version are nonsensical, as are the questions. Summer I spent the entire summer playing catch up with Child 1.
Sometimes I checked the material secretly to determine if I was nuts or not.
It is rigorous and challenging, and yet still presented in an engaging way. On the first day of a new word list, I read through the words with the students having them read the words several times along with me. I have given my kids the opportunity to choose their own science program and they chose Plato, hands down.
I don't think he was reading at the time. We loved Plato science so much that this year we are using Plato's comprehensive program. One of the things that I felt we were lacking was in vocabulary.
However, I must warn you. My son seems to do well with it - does great on the tests, but it is hard enough that he struggles some with the reviews having to go back and re-watch the lesson sometimes before he proceeds to the test.
It is quite effective. Even my 5th grader learned a lot from the presentation. My daughter followed along and took notes in the study guide, and I think her retention of the material was much better.
I reminded him all of the times daily he said he couldn't do it and handed him the book. No textbook, no lesson, just problems.
It's an excellent product. As a busy mom, I like this curriculum much better than unstructured resources no matter how complete. This part of the approach is fundamental in making everything else work and anyone can do it even if they are illiterate or don't speak English. Plato has the best coverage of middle school science topics I've seen, and the kids love it.

Jul 26, · I too am in favour of extra work on vocabulary. I was aware when we first began a CM style education that simply talking about new vocab words when they come up in readings was more “the way it’s done”, but my ds10 and ds8 seemed to zone out a bit on these discussions so I decided to try a workbook format – Wordly Wise – about a year ago.
Wordly Wise Book 5: Systematic Academic Vocabulary Development There is a week worth of activities to practice using the words, and pre and post tests. After every 4 sections (i think) there is review of all words covered in those 4 sections/weeks.
