    A Word a Day provides a structured format to help students build vocabulary with quick, daily practice. The 366 lessons contain the following features:

  • the word is defined
  • the part of speech is given for the word
  • the word is used in a sentence designed to provide enough context that students can easily grasp the meaning
  • two oral exercises are given to help students understand and articulate what the new word means

    The two exercises for each word in A Word a Day, Primary are consistent for each word. The first exercise requires students to identify features that are and are not attributes of the target word. One of the most effective ways to help students identify subtleties of meaning is to identify attributes that do not apply. The second exercise connects students with the word by asking them to share an opinion, personal experience, or other comment that demonstrates their understanding of the new word. An additional feature of A Word a Day, Primary is reproducible patterns for creating individual word books. Teacher instructions for making and using these word books are given.
