We really enjoyed Vocab Ahead. It is a DVD Rom with more than 1000 Vocabulary Words and MP3 audio files. Some of my children are very visual and audio, so this was PERFECT. VocabAhead is very versatile! It has audio files and also video, making it possible to have it read to you, plus having a picture put with it! It appealed to all learning styles in my house! You see it and hear it, have your student write it and you have reinforced vocabulary from all angles! It also provides part of speech information about the word! This is great for SAT words!!! We have used this on our computers and ipod! We are looking forward to adding it our iphones soon! (also great for the ipad).
VocabAhead DVD rom is available at Amazon.com for $24.99. I think this is a great value because of it’s versatility and the ability to use it again with other students. We used this for the high school level, but my middle school student would definitely retain this information. I think we may use it for the whole family to build our vocabulary!!
