SuperKids.com's educational software experts have reviewed thousands of programs since 1995. Their teams of parents, teachers, and kids have been exposed to the best, and the well, not-as-good in educational technology. They know what works, and what doesn't, and their word is trusted by a million visitors/month.
Here, in SuperKids Word-of-the-Day for 8th Grade, they have created a deceptively elegant app for the iPhone that can be used for a few minutes at a time while on the go, or in extended sessions to master 365 important words.
This app provides a coordinated drill and game pair that makes expanding your vocabulary easy and fun. Students use interactive flash cards to learn and review, and then practice their knowledge in a game of hangman. These elements activate different learning centers in the brain, and utilize active study and immersive recall techniques to improve memory acquisition and retention.
Special features include:
- definitions, synonyms, and a usage example for each word
- bi-directional learning: words to definitions, definitions to words
- learn in monthly sets
- automatic missed word tracking and review
- high score tracking for each player
- email report card and study review
- game position and status memory
Words included in this app are based on the vocabulary set honed by millions of users of SuperKids.com's online vocabulary tools over the last ten years.
A strong vocabulary is an essential element of understanding and communication. Use this app to give your child the linguistic foundation to achieve their potential, and become a SuperKid at school and beyond.

Ratings and Reviews
Love the idea but it crashes every time
I bought this for my 8th grader who doesn't like to read (thus his vocabulary has really suffered). I thought "Great! This will make learning words fun. He can use it on his iPhone!" I love the concept and the word games, but it's designed for one word per day - I need unlimited - so you breeze through the entire library in no time, and it crashes pretty much every time he uses the app (he has an iPhone 5). Hoping another release will fix this soon.
Victory is mine!
After CONTENDING with my SURLY behaviour following a loss in the 9th grade edition of this app, my son gave me a chance to RECOUP my pride. It was a PROTRACTED battle, but eventually he had to RELINQUISH his title.
Good words. Good game. Get it.
great vocab app!
love the app!
great variety of words, easy to use, and great graphics.
perfect way to keep kids occupied and interested in learning, especially on car rides.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
