Wordly Wise 3000® provides direct academic vocabulary instruction that develops the critical link between vocabulary and reading comprehension.  Direct instruction of important, useful, or difficult words for each grade level helps students successfully comprehend content-area texts and improve test results.

In Books K-1, students are introduced to vocabulary through a carefully sequenced progression of activities that develop sophisticated oral vocabulary.

Books 2-12 incorporate the use of context clues, word study (Greek and Latin roots, prefixes and suffixes, and synonyms and antonyms), reading comprehension, and writing.
The words chosen for Wordly Wise 3000® were selected to expand critical grade-level vocabulary and improve reading comprehension.  The words are mainly Tier 2 words—high-utility, academic vocabulary—with a healthy smattering of Tier 3 words—domain-specific academic vocabulary.

Words from each lesson are commonly encountered in:

  • grade-level literature
  • content-area reading
  • textbooks
  • high-stakes tests – including the PSAT, SAT, and ACT
