    LearnThatWord is the only fully managed solution that builds this automaticity.

    You’ll meet each word repeatedly over time and explore its nuances and “flavors.” Our multimedia resources bring words to life.

Strong Start of Vocabulary Junction

500+ Enrolled Teachers During First Week of Campaign

Sebastopol, CA. (9/22/2010) - Hundreds of teachers and school librarians enrolled in the first days of the LearnThatWord.org campaign, making free vocabulary tutoring available to their third grade students.

"We are thrilled by the response created organically through word of mouth, and now see an exciting acceleration of enrollments," says Rosevita Warda, Executive Director of nonprofit eSpindle Learning. "Fortunately we had just extended our customer service team to provide 24/7 support, so we could ensure that support quality did not suffer from the demand." 

LearnThatWord.org designs 100% personalized learning sessions supported by a database of 150,000 words, complete with audio, images, translations in 37 languages, definitions, context samples with audio, tutoring comments, links to online resources, and more.

LearnThatWord.org, with its unique Pay-Per-Result concept, is already the most affordable way for schools to teach vocabulary. Vocabulary Junction now offers the award-winning resource to public schools' third grade classrooms free of charge.

In many neighborhoods, up to 70% of fourth grade students are ill-prepared to succeed in school. As the focus shifts from learning to read to reading to learn, those who lack the vocabulary to make sense of content are doomed to fall behind. Indeed, 75% of fourth graders who struggle with literacy drop out of school later on.

The key to achieving literacy proficiency and academic success is vocabulary.
While a middle-class child enters school knowing 2,150 words on average, a child from an underprivileged household struggles to survive with a vocabulary of 600 words (Flynn, 2008). 
This vocabulary divide commonly widens dramatically during the first years of school.

A video introduction to the problem and the solution provided by nonprofit eSpindle Learning, Vocabulary Junction, is available here.

To get started, teachers create a free teacher account and contact the 24/7 live support team to get their third grade students included in the campaign. Registering a school account gives the school 100 free learning credits as well.

Included in the campaign are unlimited customer support and professional development, as well as rewards, diplomas, and prizes.

Vocabulary Junction is made possible by the generous support of Google, who is helping eSpindle Learning raise member contributions through its Google Grants program.
