Whats New in the Daily Language Review
Common Core Edition

This revised edition of Daily Language Review has been updated to cover and support
the Common Core State Standards and methodology. The Common Core approach
focuses on the following:

expanding useful academic and idiomatic vocabulary


using language, not just identifying elements of language
practicing language in the context of reading and writing, not in isolation

To reflect the Common Core approach, Daily Language Review now provides
Increased vocabulary practice:
word choice
word relationships
multiple vocabulary strategies
writing sentences with new vocabulary
Items using context sentences:
editing sentences
completing sentences
writing sentences
Daily topic focus:
mimics writing a paragraph, dialogue, opinion/argument, or report
represents more authentic classroom-related uses of language
Exposure to sentences from all Common Core writing types:
informational
narrative
opinion/argument

A Note About the Skills Scope and Sequence:

The Common Core Language Standards were written to build upon skills taught in previous grades.
Page 26 of the Common Core State Standards document states: Students advancing through the
grades are expected to meet each years grade-specific standards and retain or further develop
skills and understandings mastered in preceding grades. Therefore, the skills scope and sequence
lists grade-level skills as well as skills introduced in earlier grades.

How to Answer the Vocabulary Questions

usually used. If needed, change the word to make it agree with the subject

3. To understand a word with a prefix or suffix, divide the word and think
about each part separately. Then figure out how the prefix or suffix
changes the root word.
4. To figure out the meaning of an unknown word, look for context clues
in the sentence.
