Description

The app contains 135 words that students need to know for the SAT test. The words are listed in alphabetical order. The words come with the usual meaning, part of speech, and sentence. The special and fun part is the mnemonics element. Each word also comes with a link, a matching cartoon and the idea of the link.

Abate (v) -

to become less in intensity

Link: bait

Idea: bait getting smaller

Link: a simple word derived from the main word

Bait is close to abate

Cartoon: a funny or bizarre picture connecting the link and the meaning of the word

Big bait and small bait

Idea: gives in words the connection to the link and the cartoon

Bait getting smaller

The teacher and students should go over the words together making the mnemonic elements as wild as possible. Teachers should encourage students to create their own links and cartoons.

Remember, this is only one way to learn vocabulary. There is no substitute for reading.
