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.
