I truly love this product! I have one 8th grader who learned all the words in the SAT Word Power Edition in one week because of the mnemonic devices. Then he learned the entire book II the following week. Now I'm going to challenge all my kids."

This vocabulary program is great! There are 3 books in the series. We have the elementary book and are using it for 4th and 5th grade. Before this we used Wordly Wise for two years and my daughter hated it. Now, vocabulary is one of her favorite subjects. The book is very easy to use. Each vocabulary word has a funny cartoon. Here is an example: one of the words is abduct. It will say the word at the top of the page with the pronunciation. It will say what the definition is and what the word sounds like. In this case, the word sounds like duck. The cartoon is a robber stealing some ducks from a pond. The sentence below the cartoon say, Abducted ducks. Below this are three more sentences with the word abduct. Now when the child hears the word abduct, there mind can recall the picture of the abducted ducks and will remember the definition, which is to kidnap or carry off by force. It is a very clever approach and really works. After 10 vocabulary cartoons there is a review test. This is a big hit at our house and we highly recommend it. The elementary book has 250 pages and 210 vocabulary cartoons, so it lasts quite awhile. Give it a try!!”
We do vocab every other day. DS reviews five words on the first day, 5 words on the second day, and tests on the third. I love that the pronunciation of each word fits the memory trick. It makes it easier for DS and gives him confidence.”
This is a fabulous vocabulary book!! My son has enjoyed the first book so much....everyday he chooses to do it b/c he enjoys it so much. He has just finished it....I believe he has mastered about 210 words from the book. I just wish there was a book for middle school!! I've even enjoyed the cartoons and have learned from it! Highly recommended!!”
