Wordly Wise 3000® 4th Edition and Wordly Wise i3000™, Available in Print or Digital From School Specialty, Now Available for Pre-Order

4/18/2017 11:38:00 AM

GREENVILLE, Wis. – April 18, 2017 – EPS Instruction and Intervention, a division of School Specialty (OTCQB: SCOO), today announced that Wordly Wise 3000® 4th Edition (print) and Wordly Wise i3000™ (digital), are now available for pre-order for the 2017-2018 school year.

The Wordly Wise 3000® programs provide engaging, direct academic vocabulary instruction to develop the critical link between vocabulary and reading comprehension. Peer sharing opportunities and differentiated reading passages for each lesson meet the needs of today’s diverse student population—allowing students to have successful encounters with grade-level vocabulary instruction and practice.

“Wordly Wise 3000 is a popular and proven resource for teachers who want to help their students build the strong vocabulary skills requisite for success in school, college and career,” said Bodie Marx, senior vice president, School Specialty Curriculum. “With these new editions of Wordly Wise 3000, teachers now have access to more activities with more engagement to reach more students.”

Wordly Wise 3000 4th Edition provides new engaging, research-based activities that have been expanded and updated to increase variety and student success. The multiple exposures and critical practice provide a deep understanding of new vocabulary, helping students improve reading comprehension and increase test scores. New Turn and Talk activities encourage peer-to-peer interaction, which allows students to apply the word knowledge they have learned throughout each lesson, and “own” their individual vocabulary. 

The digital program, Wordly Wise i3000™, includes practice activities that are self-paced and automatically scored, saving valuable time for teachers. There are multiple social sharing opportunities, providing engagement and peer learning opportunities. Once students have shared their work, they are able to view peer responses. Wordly Wise i3000 provides educators with real-time progress monitoring, and administrators with critical data about student engagement and mastery, as well as teacher productivity.

Amy Holland, who teaches eighth grade English Language Arts at Bunsold Middle School in Marysville, Ohio, has used Wordly Wise in her classroom for the past five years and says her students are excited to find the program is applicable in and out of the classroom.

“My students love to bring me examples of Wordly Wise 3000 words they find in text in other classes, shows they watch or books they read outside of class,” said Holland. “One student told me they appreciate how much Wordly Wise has helped them in their everyday life. The structure of Wordly Wise gives students multiple opportunities for interaction and exposure to a word, which helps them to know it well and know it deeply. Truly, the content of Wordly Wise is perfect for eighth graders.”

 
Wordly Wise 3000 has partnered with Quizlet, an online platform that provides engaging game and study activities to practice new vocabulary. In both programs, students and teachers can choose from seven available study and game modes (flashcards, learn, spell, test, match, gravity and live) to practice and master the vocabulary they are learning.
