WordBulidOnLine ~a TOS review

Happy Friday friends! It’s the last Friday before we start our 14th year of homeschooling! Summer flew by but we enjoyed it and I know I am ready to dive back into dedicated learning. One of the things we worked on over our break was continuing to build the kids vocabulary with the help of Wordbuild Online from Dynamic Literacy, LLC
  Dynamic Literacy WordBuild Online 
The WordBuild program focused on mastering the roots of words so that students will be able to ultimately figure out the meaning of words they encounter. They call this process morphology, and it has been widely effective with many children, including those who struggle with reading or have dyslexia. Using the interactive, online lessons for just 15 minutes a day helps your student gain new vocabulary words to increase reading comprehension and overall test scores. 

We were given access to the two levels of the program, Foundations and Elements to use with Micah, my rising 3rd grader, and McKenzie, my rising 7th grader. 

There are three levels of the Foundations program with twenty-five units in the Foundations program focuses on learning the most common prefixes and suffix’s. Students may begin this program when they have learned phonics or if they are in second through 4th grade. To begin your student will need to watch a short introduction video about the program. The lessons are short, and kept Micah, my rising third graders attention. There is some typing involved in the program which was no problem for Micah. If your student struggles with using the keyboard you could have them narrate to you since you are under a time limit.
McKenzie worked in the Elements program which dives into Greek and Latin roots that make up the English language. This was the perfect spot for her. This program offers three different levels, with each level having 25-36 units to complete. It takes roughly a year to complete a level and is geared towards students who have completed the Foundations program or are at least in the sixth grade.

Micah would normally complete his short lessons in the morning, while McKenzie waited until she got home from practice.
Dynamic Literacy WordBuild Online I am really excited about this program and so glad that we were offered the chance to review it! To me, it’s one of those hidden gems that I have never heard about, but I am so pleased with the results. I wished I would have known about it years earlier when Mikayla, my most recent graduate, was younger and struggled with reading comprehension. It would have saved me many sleepless nights of worrying.

You can believe that I have been telling all my friends about it as they prepare for the new school year. I am excited to have both kids continue with this program as we start our new school year! Since the lessons are short and quick, we won’t have any trouble adding them to our homeschool day. I think you should investigate this program if you are looking for something to help improve reading comprehension or vocabulary for your child. But don’t just take my word for it, be sure to check out what 16 of my CrewMates thought of both programs by clicking the banner below to read their thoughts.
