My fantastic colleagues at SMART high school clued me into these free vocabulary platforms.

Ms. Gutierrez uses vocabulary.com
for review and student practice.

Everybody loves a good game, thus it makes perfect sense to gamify vocabulary review.

It's free, fun, and tailored to each student. Students progress through levels and track their progress.

Ok, so now that you have a techy way to introduce and review vocab you're set, right? But really. Is it possible to explicitly teach every single unknown word in a grade-level text? No.

Not to worry! Lingro allows you to embedded definitions (ex. English-Spanish) within a digital text. It's an online dictionary as well. Thanks to Ms. Hoagland for this ingenious tool!
