SuperKids.com's educational software experts have reviewed thousands of programs since 1995. Their teams of parents, teachers, and kids have been exposed to the best, and the well, not-as-good in educational technology. They know what works, and what doesn't, and their word is trusted by a million visitors/month.
Here, in SuperKids Word-of-the-Day for 9th Grade, they have created a deceptively elegant app for the iPhone that can be used for a few minutes at a time while on the go, or in extended sessions to master 365 important words.
This app provides a coordinated drill and game pair that makes expanding your vocabulary easy and fun. Students use interactive flash cards to learn and review, and then practice their knowledge in a game of hangman. These elements activate different learning centers in the brain, and utilize active study and immersive recall techniques to improve memory acquisition and retention.
Special features include:
- definitions, synonyms, and a usage example for each word
- bi-directional learning: words to definitions, definitions to words
- learn in monthly sets
- automatic missed word tracking and review
- high score tracking for each player
- email report card and study review
- game position and status memory
Words included in this app are based on the vocabulary set honed by millions of users of SuperKids.com's online vocabulary tools over the last ten years.
A strong vocabulary is an essential element of understanding and communication. Use this app to give your child the linguistic foundation to achieve their potential, and become a SuperKid at school and beyond.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
