Marie’s Words Review

Expanding vocabulary for my small people is at the top of my schooling “to-do” list. Having a strong vocabulary is important for reading comprehension, writing, and SAT preparation. Imagine my delight when I received the opportunity to review a game that will help with vocabulary skills!

Marie’s Words uses colorful illustrations to help create a memorable definition for each of the 550 words selected from the SAT test and literature. On the other side of each card is the phonetic pronunciation, part of speech, definition, synonyms, antonyms, and the word used in a sentence.

The three older kids and I sat down to play this the other day. We chose 20 cards and placed them picture side up on the floor. Each of us took turns trying to figure out the definitions for the words using the illustrations.

My voracious reader absolutely LOVED the game and has already asked to play it again. My ultra-competitive child liked the game as long as he was winning.

I can easily see this game becoming a favorite. I can also see it helping not just my children but also helping me to expand my vocabulary. There were quite a few words that were unfamiliar to me in the couple of rounds of the game that we played.

Features of Marie’s Words

  • Vivid, fun and original illustrations
  • Precise definitions and pronunciations
  • Easy to replace synonyms and antonyms
  • Meaningful sentences structured similarly to those used on the SAT
  • Numbered 1 to 550 to aid alphabetizing
  • Carry-ring ready for road trip
  • Endorsed by teachers for ages 5-years and older
  • Marie’s Words can be found at Timberdoodle, a great resource for homeschool supplies and curriculum. You can check out Timberdoodle on Facebook as well. I recommend visiting their site, and while you’re there, make sure you request a free homeschool catalog.

    As a member of Timberdoodle’s Blogger Review Team, I received a free copy of Marie’s Words in exchange for a frank and unbiased review.
