SVE Overview

Science Vocabulary Essentials® (SVE™) is a software program that teaches students how to decode, pronounce, spell, define, and use scientific words and terms. SVE’s standards-based content, which is appropriate for students from third- through eighth-grade, addresses six categories of scientific themes:

  • How We Learn
  • Earth Science
  • Life Science
  • Physical Science
  • Science Processes
  • Technology

SVE’s campus license allows for a variety of uses, so you can determine how the program can best benefit your students. You can:

  • Pre-teach vocabulary and essential concepts before beginning a unit;
  • Reinforce classroom instruction by providing a review of critical science concepts and vocabulary;
  • Implement as an intervention for struggling learners; or
  • Review and practice for benchmark tests and state assessments.
