Association Makes Vocabulary Easy as Pie

Teach your child a simple association trick: Read, Connect, Sentence, and Picture. He reads a word: tenacious, which means "unyielding" or "strong." Next, he makes a connection by sound. When he reads tenacious, it sounds similar to tennis aces. Then, he writes a sentence to connect the two concepts: "Tennis aces are tenacious when they win." Finally, ask him to draw a picture to remember the association visually.
