Practice Makes Perfect Mastering Vocabulary by Gary Robert Muschla

This title provides helpful instruction and plenty of practice for your child to master the basics of vocabulary. Having a strong grasp of vocabulary is essential for your child to read and write with confidence. Practice Makes Perfect: Mastering Vocabulary gives your child bite-sized explanations of the subject, with engaging exercises that keep her or him motivated and excited to learn. They can practice the vocabulary they find challenging, polish skills they've mastered, and stretch themselves to explore skills they have not yet attempted. This book features 450 words that increase in difficulty as your child proceeds through it. This book is appropriate for a 6th grade student working above his or her grade level, or as a great review and practice for a struggling 7th or 8th grader. Your student will learn how to: apply vocabulary rules; understand meaning and usage; differentiate between synonyms, antonyms, homophones, and more; and, conquer easily confused words.
