 WordMasters   

 

The WordMasters Challenge is a nation-wide vocabulary competition based on completing analogies. Meets are held right at Swift School three times per year.  There's also a link for the copy of your schedule. 

 

We'll meet each week to learn how to understand analogies and also help you learn your words.  But the students who do best on the challenges are the ones who also practice at home.  Please take some time  to practice.  You'll be glad you did!!
