Book Lovers Guide to Vocabulary Building

Book Lovers Guide to Vocabulary Building
We used the Kaplan SAT Score-Raising classics to improve vocabulary in our homeschool. If you have never seen those books before, they are a great way to focus on vocabulary building using real, high quality literature. Each book has hundreds of vocabulary words frequently tested on the SAT that are highlighted throughout the text. The definitions for each highlighted word on the facing page, so a quick glance will help teens understand the word in contest. It has a pronunciation guide and an index for easy reference. We used some of these books in my own home.

Books that may appeal to young men




Books that may appeal to young women



Consider the boxed set to get a blend of great books


Working your way through a few of the books on my College Bound Reading List can improve vocabulary as teens enjoy real books. It's not a checklist, it's only a list of often-read books that colleges recognize. Showing a few books from the College Bound Reading List on your reading list can show that your child is well-read, and prepared for college level work.

If you are already reading classics, you may want to branch out for your vocabulary building.
I've heard great reports about Flocabulary. I haven't used this myself, because it's new, and I can't say for certain this is PG content, but I do know that I have members that use this and love this!


If you try Flocabulary, please comment and let me know what you think of it.
