For Woodland Elementary fourth-grader Logan Fu, practice makes perfect—two years in a row, to be exact.
Last year, Fu was one of only 52 students his age to achieve a perfect score on a WordMasters™ Challenge, a national vocabulary competition that involves 150,000 students annually. One year older and wiser, he repeated that feat this spring and joined some select company in the process.
How select? Fu is one of only 24 fourth-grade students nationally to achieve a perfect score on a WordMasters Challenge this year.
The WordMasters Challenge program encourages students in grades three through eight to become familiar with a new, advanced set of words. Students are then challenged to use those words to complete analogies—sharpening their critical thinking skills and helping them think both analytically and metaphorically.
