How I Use It
Students used Wordflex to look up word definitions, and see the connections between the word and its roots, synonyms, antonyms, etymology, and use with prefixes and suffixes. Explode allows students to see the word branch out into trees. Real word lovers can make posters out of their word trees.
My Take
This app can turn kids into real word lovers. It is the kind of app that a kid can get lost in. It is perfect for ELL's and also for the gifted student who wants to build vocabulary. It is ideal for SAT prep.
