Program Samples

Each level of WordBuild provides a full year of curriculum and is designed to be used in no more than 15 minutes per day, 4-5 days per week. This is key to success with the program.

Elements

Always start your students with Elements 1, whether they are in 6th grade or 12th grade.  WordBuild teaches the system behind English, so think of it as learning a foreign language – you would always start with Russian 1 regardless of age.

The Elements Series is designed for students who have a mastery of phonics, have a good working knowledge of prefixes and suffixes, and are exposed to academic text in the content areas. In schools, these are traditionally middle school and high school students. Students will learn how English words are built and strategies to determine pieces of meaning embedded in words.

Activities teach students to break complex words into prefixes, roots, and suffixes while they learn the meanings of the most frequently used Latin & Greek roots by manipulating word parts. Weekly study is based on root families and students are encouraged to make cross-curricular connections.

Remember... Always start with Foundations Level 1 or Elements level 1 regardless of age.

Foundations

WordBuild® Foundations is the first in a series of vocabulary products designed for students from third grade through college and adult literacy programs. It is the next logical step after phonics, and lays the foundation for the bridge from phonics to comprehension.

Mastery of phonics helps students 'sound out' unfamiliar words.

The study of morphics helps students 'mean out' unfamiliar words.

Exercises and activities teach students to see that words are composed of morphemes, or individual units of meaning. Foundations focuses on the prefixes and suffixes and builds on students' prior knowledge by attaching them to words they already know.

Remember... Always start with Foundations Level 1 or Elements level 1 regardless of age.
