About MyVoculary.com
MyVocabulary.com, educational content on 2500 pages, is free and available only online without ads or registration. Since 1997 the featured word puzzles and word challenges use Latin and Greek root-based activities to address eight different learning styles. Lesson plans across the curriculum display interactive content starting with ELA Root Word Lesson Plans and continuing to 90 Calendar & Subject-specific themed word puzzles. Resources help expand vocabulary, decoding skills and word acquisition. Student engagement is self-paced, safe and aligns with the CCSS-Common Core State Standards. Every puzzle page has a specific CCSS strand number that is applicable to the activity.

Over 250 SAT® and ACT®-type words contain a rigorous word root focus. The word puzzle engine uses at least seven interactive activities to reinforce mastery of each unfamiliar vocabulary word. On every activity after study, students submit answers, see the correct answer in a sentence, get a percentage score with a comment & grade and can email results to their teacher/parent/tutor. Myvocabulary.com provides over 570 Word Lists. Speech pathologists, ESL professionals and teachers from K-5, especially, use word lists for word walls and spelling. Upper grades use newly acquired words in conversations, presentations and essays. Vocabulary lists for 155 Classic Books or Required Readings, many with interactive activities, are highly popular.
