Vocabulary . com

Parents, I am experimenting with a new web tool to help your child learn vocabulary – Vocabulary.com.

I have set up an educator’s account, and I am ready to accept your child into his/her class to practice.  To join, click on my profile link here:  http://www.vocabulary.com/profiles/A0GSSJY5GXYWHM  .

At my profile, click on the correct class link and you will be instructed to create an account.  You can find lists of words you want your child to study.  I suggest starting with these:

Easily confused words – http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/551148

And – http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/346263

Commonly Confused Words – http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/234413

And – http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/194392/practice

Caught Between Words? – http://www.vocabulary.com/lists/388207

These lists will help your child study for words which often show up on tests that are easily confused with other words.  Joining is not mandatory and work will not be graded.  I am trying to assess the website for future use while giving your child another learning tool.

You can also check out which lists I am studying.  Never stop learning.
