I am blessed with a highschooler who absolutely loves words. Since she learned to read she always had a dictionary nearby and would flip through it for fun (what a nerd, huh? LOL.)
We have second grader too and I have been searching for something that would help her develop her vocabulary that wasn’t teacher intensive. I really, really dislike teacher guides and hard to teach curriculum and was unable to find what I was seeking – so I set out on a path to create my own vocabulary curriculum – Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary. Since my daughter will be in 3rd grade in the fall, I created this volume for 3rd-4th graders. If I find people like it, I will work on more volumes.
To enhance Daily Skill Building: Vocabulary we created some FREE Vocabulary Resources for you.
Included in this FREEBIE:
- Vocabulary Definition Lists
- Sentences Building
- Graphic Organizers
- Word Maps, & More!

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 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.
Now available in 5 levels: Level A (1st Grade) | Level B (2nd Grade) | Level I (Grades 3-4), Level II (Grades 5-6), Level III (Middle School, Grade 7)
