Here is an example of a word that I learned in the beginning of the year off of Membean.com:
In this Language Arts class, we had the opportunity to use a vocabulary program called Membean. It teaches new words and analyzes your work to decide what to do for your words. I really like it much better than book-and-list vocab, because you get to personalize your learning. It is really fun, so I do it quite a lot. I have been able to get past one level, and now I am close to finishing the program.
