The Word Wizard's Guide to Florida Middle School Vocabulary by Chris Kensler

Some kids collect baseball cards. I collect words.

Hi! I'm the Word Whiz. I'm in middle school, just like you, and I'm going to turn you into a Word Whiz -- just like me! I'm going to introduce you to more than 600 words middle school students need to know for tests, in class, and when doing homework. Important words for important subjects, such as:

Language Arts: paraphrase, imagery, relevant, metaphor, symbolism

Math: convert, probability, hypotenuse, median, variable

Social Studies: advocate, inalienable, eligible, posterity, consequences

Science: buoyant, neutron, friction, oxidation, synthesis

I've also included words commonly used in questions on the FCAT, including approximate, equivalent, and opinion.

My WhizWord lists have kid-friendly definitions and sample sentences, plus synonyms, antonyms, related words and meanings, and examples of how the words are used on the FCAT.

I've also included all this extra cool stuff:

* WhizTips: helpful hints on how to learn words and ace tests.

* WhizQuizzes: mini-quizzes to help cement the words in your brain.

* WhizFacts: general good stuff to know about these words.

And that's not all! I also made up some really fun practice exercises. They will help you nail down these vocabulary words by relating them to things we're interested in, like TV, movies, sports, and music.

The words in this book will come in handy for the rest of your life. So let's get started!
