Wordly Wise 3000 Online

Well, we’re giving it up.  My daughter was on lesson 10 of the second level and she doesn’t remember a lot of the words.  Little retention means that there is little point in reminding her to go through the program.

While we loved the K and 1st grade level of this program, the other levels are decidedly different.  Instead of picture vocabulary cards and a cute story, there are now dry definitions of each word.  When we first began using the online program it seemed to be a bit more palatable for my daughter than the workbooks, but now I know that if it is a slightly difficult word (eg. girder) then she will not remember the definition.

I think we need to go back to more of a picture based study.  Or perhaps we will forget all about vocabulary and just talk about the words that we stumble across in our readings.
