The Gifted and Talented Department sponsors the optional WordMasters competitions for our elementary schools. The WordMasters Challenge is a fun and mind-stretching classroom competition for Language Arts students in grades 3-5. WordMasters encourages growth in vocabulary and verbal reasoning. Over 4,200 school teams, from 50 states, participated last year.
WordMasters addresses higher-level word comprehension and logical abilities and helps students learn to think both analytically and metaphorically. It challenges students to solve analogies based on relationships among words they have learned. These analogies are drawn from special vocabulary lists, which students are provided before each challenge.
Please contact the GT Coach at your child's school if you have any other questions about WordMasters and also to see if your school participates.
