There's even grade appropriate experience with college-level analytical essay questions. The worktext provides a passage to read followed by a series of questions - both multiple choice/short answer as well as short essay. A complete answer key is available in the back which includes sample essay answers that identify key points).

    With plenty of examples from classic and modern literature, this book teaches students about a variety of literary terms and devices. The following concepts are covered: plot, conflict, character, setting, point of view, style, mood, theme, tone, and genre. Each element is defined and then explained with examples from literary excerpts. Exercises help students develop and apply their skills in these areas. For example, in the "Story Elements" section, there are exercises requiring students to match up cause and effect statements and sequence of events based on context clues. Short answer and writing activities are also featured throughout the book. One assignment requires students to write a paragraph from different points of view, while another asks students to describe the tone and mood of a book they've recently read. Vocabulary words appear in bold throughout the lessons, and the length of each lesson varies. An appendix contains a story elements chart, a character development chart, glossary, answer key, and bibliography. Reproducible. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Looking for a fun way to increase your child's vocabulary? 180 reproducible cartoons are contained in this book, and each highlights a new word to learn for the day. It's like reading the comics, but a bit more educational. Verbs, nouns, and adjectives are all included, and the vocabulary words are all in common use. For each of the cartoons, one of the characters is saying something humorous within the context of what is going on in the picture. The vocabulary word is bolded within the cartoon, and the part of speech and definition of the word is given to the side. Two cartoons are displayed on every page of the book, and everything is in black and white. While black and white cartoons could be seen as a drawback (who doesn't love the colorful Sunday comics the best?), children could have fun and get more use out of the book by coloring the comics themselves. The vocabulary words are geared towards 4th-6th graders, but could be enjoyable for younger or older students depending on their vocabulary level. 94 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

Fun Spanish is a workbook that teaches beginners Spanish, one phrase at a time.

    Each page shows a realistic color illustration of the animal with text giving some interesting information about the creature. For example, some have a different modern name than what was used in the Bible, such as the pygarg (a type of wild goat). You learn the context in which the animal is mentioned and see the specific verse at the bottom of the page. The text was interesting and used some great vocabulary for children to learn. There are many references to something being an unclean animal (not to be eaten) which was fascinating. Animals are shown alphabetically and include things like badger, eagle, goat, ibex, mouse, owl, quail, tortoise and more. I liked how this book ties the Bible to the world around us. 8” x 8” 44pp, hc. ~ Sara

      “Take us to Your Reader!” Your goal is to reach Cosmos. Start reading on Earth; answering questions correctly will move you towards outer space. The first player to reach Cosmos wins. But there are twists, turns, and dangers ahead! A player may switch places with you; you may lose a turn; you may be sent back to another planet. You can save yourself, however, with the much sought after X-Pack—but you’re allowed only one at a time!

      This creative and enjoyable game reinforces reading comprehension techniques such as main idea, inference, details, cause/effect, visualizing and sequencing. Also highlighted are more complex skills including figurative language, context clues, comparison/contrast, genre, rhyming and vocabulary/grammar. These absolutely crucial reading skills are practiced while playing in an engaging and fun space-themed game format—with a bit of humor along the way.

      Four square game boards are double sided. Place them together, but players stay on their individual boards. Everyone starts on the side that shows earth. Use the spinner to start, and then select Earth card questions (either level A or the more challenging, B). Cards sometimes ask you to read the card’s passage and answer questions or may reinforce reading terms. Once you’ve made it to the rocket ship and correctly answered the next question, flip your game board over and move to the Space questions (there’s also a level A and B). Travel to 7 planets and then reach Cosmos.

      Won’t the cards’ reading selections just get routine or memorized? Substitute your own questions for the included cards. Imagine using your students’ textbook reading comprehension questions to reach the Cosmos! Caution: product may cause extreme fun while learning!

      Includes four double-sided game boards, a sturdy spinner card, 4 game pawns, 140 question cards, rules and answer key. Correlates to CCS standards. For 2-4 players. ~ Ruth

    Barron's does such a great job with test prep, and here is another example of that! They keep it simple: tell you what you need to know and how to apply it to an exam. The ACT tests vocabulary in a variety of contexts. Students will be making generalizations, drawing conclusions, comparing, interpreting, formulating & more within the three verbal portions: English, Reading & Writing.

    This vocabulary book is divided into 26 lessons. Each begins with a test-taker's anecdote – a few short paragraphs with snippets of common errors to avoid. Following is a word bank of 10 words, a manageable number for most students. There is a short definition followed by three sample sentences for each of the ten words and then memory tips, mnemonic tricks, and some matching practice with the vocab words and definitions. At the end of the lesson is a true/false exercise. Answers to the review exercises are in the back along with a glossary. The small format (6"x9") makes it handy to toss in a purse or backpack. 193 pp, pb. ~ Sara
