About this Campaign
A strong vocabulary is an essential asset, bridging the gap between students who struggle and their academic success. A school-wide subscription to Vocabulary.com will help students expand their working vocabularies. With Vocabulary.com students master new words naturally by encountering them in real sentences taken from novels and articles.
Last year Lefler students and staff participated in the site’s Vocabulary Bowl. We came in first place among middle schools in Nebraska, using classroom subscriptions paid for by individual teachers. At Vocabulary.com students earn badges and awards as they level up. The free version allows teachers to see the scores of their top three students, but it doesn’t help us recognize the work of all students. A school-wide subscription to Vocabulary.com lets us monitor and celebrate the progress of everyone. A school-wide subscription, costing $4 per student, would eliminate the need for teachers to pay for their own accounts and permit us to host school competitions.
We plan to use Vocabulary.com in our homeroom time and in our Language Arts classes. Students are able to work on their chromebooks and phones at home to increase their scores and independently strengthen their vocabulary skills.
Please consider a donation to help us grow great vocabularies at Lefler!
