Containing word lists organized by character qualities and behavior traits, A Word Write Now is further divided by parts of speech to assist younger students.

Quotations from classic literature give contextual meaning; new appendices offer teaching tips and games. For more advanced learners, sections on literary genres and devices have been added. Useful for writing across the curriculum, full color, 100 pages for teachers & students.

A Word Write Now brings the concept of children’s writing resources to a whole new level! Many young writers looking for alternate vocabulary will consult a thesaurus, which may offer few choices, confusing or inappropriate options, or no useful synonyms. This can be frustrating for child and teacher alike.
This excellent resource is organized, not by definitions or meanings, but by character qualities and behavior traits. The author further classifies words by parts of speech. This magnificent full-color ninety-page spiral-bound tool makes it simple for children of all ages to find appropriate words to use in writing stories, critiques, biographies, and more. By searching for words in a meaningful way, students begin to internalize vocabulary and gain ownership of these terms.
