The combination of words, pictures, audio, and contextualizing sentences make learning new vocabulary with WORD A DAY VISUALS AND AUDIOS BY VOCABAHEAD easy and fun. The audio tool helps with pronunciation, and the synonyms and antonyms lists help kids connect the word to existing vocabulary knowledge. There are several great features, like the favorites list, the ability to view up to four words per day, the quiz, and the reminder function. The word list is drawn from VocabAhead's other tools for SAT and GRE preparation, so there is a good mix of challenging words and familiar ones. The contextualizing sentences, though, are not very tightly written and sometimes make surprising, seemingly irrelevant statements about social behavior.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
