WordMasters Basics: I homeschool my child(ren). How can we participate in the WordMasters Challenge™?

Posted by

You can enroll your homeschooled children the same way public and private schools sign up.  Choose the grade and difficulty level most appropriate for your student(s).  For each “team” that you enroll, you may submit test results for up to 10 students.  If your “team” is simply an individual child or just a few children, your scores will be recorded and included in recognition of individual performance (when appropriate) rather than the team competition, since team scores are based on a compilation of 10 individual scores.

We have several homeshool teams that compete each year and enjoy the experience. If you're thinking about enrolling your homeschool team and still have questions, contact us and we'll help you figure out the best way to join in.

WordMasters Basics: How does the WordMasters Challenge™ work?

Posted by

At each grade level, the competition consists of three 20-minute analogy-solving meets, which are held at your school three times during the academic year (December, February and April).

Prior to each meet, students are given a list of 25 challenging vocabulary words, which are customized for each competition level that will appear in the meet analogies. Excellence in the competition will require both a mastery of the word meanings and thoughtful reasoning about the relationships between the word list vocabulary and more familiar language used in the competition’s analogies.

Try one for yourself from our sixth grade blue division:

GARB : REPAST :: ___________ : ___________

(a) WEAR : STIR

(b) CLOTHES : COOK

(c) EAT : WEAR

(d) THIN : FAT

(e) SEW : COOK

 

We hope you learned a new word, or maybe a new usage for a word you already knew, as you thought your way through the choices. If you're curious, option e was the correct answer.
