When I was in school, you had to make flashcards in order to study vocabulary... not anymore! My students have to learn "stems" in our district (latin roots, prefixes, etc.). I realized that a lot of my students don't even have the materials needed to make flashcards or support at home to help them study. I decided that I needed to help them study vocabulary, somehow.
This is when I found http://www.cram.com ! It's the easiest thing in the world to create flashcards! Even better, once you create the flashcards, you can practice by playing a couple of really cool games. My kids love it! If we have a few extra minutes at the end of class, we'll put it up on the SmartBoard and play as a group. Another bonus, they can get to them at home on a computer, tablet or cell phone. No more excuses! Saying I forgot my list at school isn't going to cut it anymore. Check it out. :)
