Use these quick, ready-to-use activities to add an element of interest to your language arts program. Whether they are used to supplement the regular curriculum or to provide activities for home learning, these exercises will build students’ abilities to use words with flexibility and originality.

This long-time favorite is the perfect supplement for language arts or literature classrooms. It’s packed with games and activities that draw young and inventive minds into word analysis, vocabulary building, and literary awareness. Stimulating reproducible worksheets include practice in:
  • idioms,
  • onomatopoeia,
  • slang,
  • metaphors,
  • spoonerism,
  • analogies,
  • hyperbole,
  • similes,
  • rebus,
  • hinky pinky,
  • relationships, and
  • word squares.

The purpose of this book is to create an awareness of words that goes beyond the mere phonetic analysis of words usually associated with reading and spelling instruction. As a result of doing the activities in this book, students should see words as vehicles for creating illusions, ways of expressing feelings, and means of communicating ideas. Improve writing, build thinking skills, and add an element of fun with this book. Serve a tantalizing dish of language experiences spiced with portions of thinking—serve an Alphabet Soup.

Other language arts vocabulary enrichment books by Dianne Draze are Red Hot Root Words (Book 1) and Red Hot Root Words (Book 2).
