    Parents and teachers often counter spelling questions with the response, "Look it up!". Unlike most dictionaries, which often contain more than 50,000 entries with more than a hundred on each page, this volume is designed for maximum efficiency for middle school students. It contains 5,000 words that research shows middle-schoolers use in over 95% of their writing. The alphabetized words include different forms the word can take and short definitions of words that sound the same but are spelled differently. A thesaurus is also included in the library. These pages offer multiple alternatives for overused words and expressions in the average middle-schooler's writing. Word banks for country and state names as well as thematic lists to help students write about major subjects like sports, school, and holidays will provide students with a chance to take responsibility for their own writing and will make it easier for the teacher to promote good writing.

    Small paper-cover book helps students keep track of new words they are learning. Each page has a letter at the top (in upper & lower case) with an illustration (apple, bee, cat, duck, etc,) lines to write words (either 28 or 56), and a short list of common words that start with that letter in the margins. Some letters get a 2-page spread while others have 1 page per letter. This might be one of those things you keep to look back on as a snapshot of your child's learning. The low price makes these a great option for a classroom too! Blue cover, 7.5x9" 28pp ~Sara

    Even the very young have an infatuation with dinosaurs. This book by DK is written for the younger crowd and includes more visuals and a smaller amount of text. Photos and illustrations are dominant on every page, and textual information is presented in short readable sections. Rather than being divided by types of dinosaurs, this book is in four general sections – world of dinosaurs, living body, senses and behavior, and death of the dinosaurs. A glossary lists many of the new words they will encounter in this book. The information is more concise for shorter attention spans, but still includes the DK quality you expect in their reference materials. Your little ones will enjoy just flipping through all of these realistic dinosaur pictures. 128 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

Everything you need is included in this handy little pack including a Spanish-English dictionary, a coursebook, and 4 audio CD's.
