Increase Vocabulary with vocabulary.com
One of my goals for this year is to increase the vocabulary use and knowledge of my students. We've focused on them in our reading, assessments, and games. One great site called vocabulary.com has thousands and thousands of words available for students to study, take challenges on, and track their progress. It really is a fantastic site.
Students start out by answering a few questions about words that determines their level, then the site claims to learn about their word prowess and tailor challenges to meet their vocabulary needs. Then it helps them learn it and tracks their progress along the way. There are also tons of vocabulary lists and blogs that talk about words, plus they claim to have the world's fastest dictionary. It's Word Nirvana!
Sign up is free. Check out the "how it works" part of their site and be amazed at the tool.
