2. Vocabulary Word Study for Visual Learners by Embark on the Journey

Like Tara, I’m trying to look ahead to the big tests my teens will need to take before entering college. Although both of my girls are huge readers, but I’m not sure that their vocabulary is at the level they’ll need in order to do well. These cards are very unique and I think they could definitely help them.

I love homeschooling! Learning is a way of life for our family. Most days you will find us exploring our Central Florida community, having fun while learning. I am constantly looking for new and interactive ways to engage my older children.

  1. Thank you very much for the feature 🙂 Glad to see I am not the only one struggling with finding a work around or a way to do it anyway when we come across things we don’t like to do.
