Learn by understanding concepts
Vocab Tunes is a unique, accelerated learning program for preschool through middle school-aged children. With our program, children sing, dance, and play their way through learning to read one hundred thousand words in twenty one days. Our learning program, the only one of its kind, consists of 3 workbooks and 21 fun music videos.
By using twenty prefixes, eighteen root words, and ten suffixes, Vocab Tunes is able to impart to students a deep understanding of words at their core, based on the meaning of the word parts.
Your child will have a massive advantage. By understanding the parts of words that words are made from, your child will be able to understand over 60% of English, up to 90% of science terminology and 71% of social studies terminology.
Most importantly, research show that young minds are excellent at understanding patterns. Think of the “times table” for math. Vocab Tunes links words together by meaning. For example, dent (tooth) is the root word for dentist (doctor), dentine (covering for the teeth) and denture (artificial teeth), these words will be seen as a pattern and stored under the root dent. As words are added, your child’s young brain will have developed the mental organization skills to easily read, remember and figure out new words.

If you are looking to increase your vocabulary or your child's this CD and workbook is what you want. The CD has tunes that help you to remember the root of the words, the meaning of the root and how it is applied to the English language. It is a great program if you are an English as a second language learner or have a struggling reader. It is wonderful for students who have to take standardized tests. Vocabtunes would definitely improve their vocab and reading comprehension scores.
I like this program. I bought Latin and Greek Root Word flashcards a few years ago and was trying to teach them to my children. We would learn a few each week, but they kept forgetting them. It was just too dry. (I think that the flashcards would work better with some context.) For me the appeal of this program is that it is to music. My son learned his math facts when I finally put them to different simple tunes like 'Mary had a Little Lamb'. So this program is helpful because there is a song for each chapter.
