Some kids collect baseball cards. I collect words.

Hi! I'm the Word Whiz. I didn't become a Whiz all on my own — my parents and teachers helped me. And together, you and I can help your child master more than 400 vocabulary words that elementary school students need to know for tests, in class, and when doing homework. Really important words for subjects like:

English Language Arts: narrator, opinion, scene, antonym, motivation
Math: average, volume, numerator, intersect, rhombus
Social Studies: equator, consequences, citizen, pioneer, heritage
Science: mammal, atmosphere, soluble, condensation, habitat

I've also included words commonly used in questions on the TAAS, such as approximately, estimate, and compare.

I made up some really fun activities to help your students learn these words. Since I'm in elementary school, my exercises involve things kids my age are interested in, like TV, movies, games, sports, and music. They come with:

* WhizTips: extra hints on how to learn vocabulary words and ace tests.
* On the TAAS: examples of how the words are used on the test.

I also wrote this huge WhizWord list in back with kid-friendly (and parent-friendly!) definitions and sample sentences. The words in this book will come in handy for the rest of your child's life...So let's get started!
