Last week the vocabulary book we were using came to an end and during the middle of the year money is scarce for extra textbooks. ( i.e. insurance, property tax, Christmas…etc.) I decided to use my savvy as a homeschool mom to come up with my own vocabulary list by browsing for free resources around the internet. (Yes, I have a dictionary but I was hoping for something that may have a goal or a theme.) My search ended upon finding The 1000 Most Common SAT Words. (It requires Adobe Acrobat to open) It is a most helpful 70 page book that has the words, the definition of each, and how to use that word in a sentence. This wonderful book will give us quite an expanded vocabulary plus give us enough work for the rest of the year.
