I’m wondering if you can help with a recurring problem. My son, Daniel, gets 20-25 vocab words every couple of weeks for his Language Arts class. For the test, he has to pull the words out of his head, spell them correctly and write the correct definition. In other words, the test is not matching or multiple choice. The teacher is very kind and wants the students to retake the test if they score below a certain percentage, but then Dan has several lists of words to study. Anyway, Dan’s been having trouble passing the tests the first time. I’ve encouraged him to write sentences using the words so that he can relate the word to something meaningful in his life. I’m wondering if you have any other suggestions.
