App Description*** One of the best educational apps of the year - Apple (iTunes Rewind) ***
Now kids can build vocab anywhere, anytime, all while having fun. With 9 addictive games designed to help understand words rather than just memorize them, our Kids’ Vocab app will broaden kids’ vocabularies and sharpen their reading & writing skills. There’s only one rule: no boring flash cards allowed.
Just like in our Parents’ Choice Award-winning SAT Vocab app, the games in Kids’ Vocab focus on different aspects of vocabulary development. Each lesson features new words and phrases while teaching spelling, usage and pronunciation. In other words, vocabularies everywhere are about to hit a major growth spurt.
Perfect for children ages 7 to 12 (grades 2 - 7), Kids’ Vocab includes one free lesson. And with 25 full lessons in the upgraded version, be warned: consistent use may result in increased reading comprehension, frequent use of big words and occasionally outsmarting full-grown adults.

* THE SCIENCE BEHIND MINDSNACKS *
At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Kids’ vocab app includes 9 rich and engaging games designed by Ivy League instructors. Each app focuses on a different aspect of vocabulary building, creating a well-rounded learning experience that goes far beyond simple flashcards and word lists.
All lessons in Kids’ Vocab were formulated by in-house education experts who synthesized a list of indispensable words and phrases using their own research as well as numerous state curricula. As kids play through the games, they will encounter usage guidelines and example sentences as well as fun factoids about homophones, word parts, etymology, and figurative language. The games also feature a unique algorithm that adapts to each student’s performance, selectively repeating material the student has yet to master. It truly is the only vocab app for kids that was built on their terms.
Perfect for kids ages 7 to 12 (grades 2 -7), our Kids’ Vocab app will keep little learners everywhere entertained just about anywhere. And with nary a flashcard in sight, vocabularies everywhere are set to launch well into the fourth dimension of awesome.
