Effective vocabulary builder
My daughter's Honors English teacher recommended this app to her class last week as a way to build vocabulary for the PSAT/SAT Critical Reading test sections. She's been playing it before bed since then, and tonight, she challenged me to beat her high score for last month's words. I'm embarassed to admit, it wasn't close. Arrgghh.
These are words I *know*, but couldn't retrieve from memory quickly enough when presented with their definitions and synonyms as clues in a series of hangman games. Words like placate, savory, termerity, and animosity. But they are now words my daughter really knows.
Growing Word Power Every Day!
I've been using this with my daughter for several days. She's learned many new words, and I've picked up some as well. I think she does better in "flash card" mode, but the hangman variation is a good mental test.
I recommend it. You never know which of these words will be on the SAT test. Give it a shot!
Fun way to learn new words
My brother and I play this game (and the 10th grade one) in the car on the way to school. I like it, because it makes it fun to learn new words without having to study them.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
