TOS Review~~VocabCafe

VocabCafe is a new series of books written for teens.  Each book has an exciting story with about 300 SAT vocabulary words written right in the story.  Each word is printed in bold and italics to stand out.  The word is also defined at the bottom of the page. 

The books contain no foul language, inappropriate materials or sorcery.  Although I.M. for Murder does have some material that might be upsetting for some children.  Parents use discretion when using this book with your children.

College Prep Genius is having a sale going on right now.  You can get all four books for the cost of three.  For $38.85 you can get:

IM for Murder
Operation High school
Planet Exile
Summer of St Nick

You can also purchase each book individually for $12.95.

We have always struggled with our kids to do their vocabulary words.  BUT when you put them inside of a very interesting story they will learn them!  We loved them!  What I liked the best was that the definitions were right at the bottom of the page.  They are especially great for those that have trouble with story recall.  Before reading the story we went over the new words.  We practiced them and learned how to say them.  I even went one step further and had them write the words out three times each.  My kids learn best if they hear, see, and write it.

See what my other crew mates are saying go HERE.
