Learn Words with These Apps!

At the end of a year, educators often are assigning review units or lessons that capture all that they have learned throughout the  past year. A top item on that review list is often vocabulary. Reviewing terms that you have learned or come across can be a very useful task. These words will often appear again in books, lessons and life in general! Also, they are a great test prep item! The iPad has many valuable free vocabulary apps available. Here are just a few of those for you to use!


Vocabulary Bubble

Games are a great way to learn important concepts. With Vocabulary Bubble, you can review over 4,500 vocabulary words and definitions. It is so simple and you will be learning so much in just minutes of playing this game. Match the word or definition to the correct bubble to get those word skills up!


This app steers far away from traditional flashcards of terms. Using some of the most popular books of our time, like “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and “Frankenstein,” you will learn vocabulary from actual sentences. You can browse hundreds of your favorite books where you can read portions of the stories while learning vocabulary! With an average of 500 vocabulary words and 1000 sentences, this is a win-win situation.
