Are you looking for an EASY open-and-go curriculum that will enhance your elementary student’s vocabulary? Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary was created with busy homeschooling moms in mind – no teacher guide is needed!
Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary Volume I - Full, Independent Curriculum for 3rd-4th Graders
Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary is a complete, 36-week vocabulary curriculum for elementary students. This simple, straight-forward approach to vocabulary building is easy to use and encourages independent study.

With busy homeschooling moms in mind, this curriculum was created as an “open and go” resource (without the need for a teacher’s guide.) The 36-week format is designed to be flexible — meaning  you can assign more than one word a day if you wish to complete it sooner.

Each week presents four new words (one per day) with a weekly review on day five. Your student will be asked to define the new word using a dictionary, use it in a sentence, and list synonyms and antonyms.

Every 4th week includes an additional review using the most recent 16 words studied plus a short writing assignment.

For your convenience, we include a glossary of words by week and order studied. Students may use either the glossary for their daily assignments or a dictionary.

Word lists are appropriate for grades 3-4. Click here for a sample of week 4.

“As a busy, work-away-from-home mom homeschooling a child, I look for open and go, streamlined curriculum for our daughter. Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary curriculum is exactly what I look for. Our nine-year-old daughter can do it independently. I do not need a teacher’s manual to give instructions to her as the instructions and resources are included and easily maneuvered by her. I would highly recommend this and for a year-long curriculum, the price is right.” ~ Linda LaDuke

“My daughter has been using this over the end of the summer and the beginning of her 4th grade year. I have been impressed with how simple the work is for her to complete, and how quickly she can get it done. Even though it is easy, it has provided her with new words to use in her writing and speech! She can complete one day of work in around five minutes, and only the reviews that come every four weeks take longer. I asked her what she thought of this curriculum. She replied, “It’s really fun and it’s pretty easy. I already knew some of the words, but I learned a lot of new ones. When I find a word I already knew, sometimes I learn a new definition for that word.” I’d say that we’ve found a winning vocabulary curriculum!” READ MORE HERE. ~ Deann Hadley, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine®, LLC.

“My daughter really loves learning her vocabulary words and she is looking forward to working through the rest of this book. I can honestly tell you that her vocabulary has improved since using this curriculum and I have noticed her using the words she has learned. We would definitely recommend purchasing Daily Skill Building Vocabulary: An Open and Go Approach for elementary students to help increase their vocabulary and word knowledge.” READ MORE HERE. ~ Cassandra Holdeman, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine, LLC.

If it is any encouragement that your curriculum works well, we LOVE it for our eight-year-old daughter, who independently dives into her assignment each week. So my heart leapt for joy when I saw your email just now. I immediately ordered Volume II. Keep it coming! ~ Candyce
