Spotlight on Vocabulary Level 2: Word Origins

Ages: 9-13
Grades: 4-8

Learning the various ways words enter the English language helps students build a rich, flexible vocabulary. Written in the successful format of the Spotlight series, the book has:

  • age-appropriate, curricular vocabulary
  • gradual progression in difficulty to build student success
  • light demands for spelling and writing
  • a pretest/posttest

Appealing, one-page lessons in a variety of formats, teach students:

  • that many words in English came from other language and cultures over many years
  • to identify members of word families and use them correctly
  • to identify blended, compound, and clipped words
  • to match acronyms and their meanings
  • to connect eponyms (words that come from the names of people or places) with their origins
  • to recognize and use differing regional and cultural vocabulary
