A Thank You Note from a Parent

Posted by


We often hear feedback from teachers, and we have started to share in our blog some of the great persuasive essays written by students hoping to start WordMasters teams in their new schools, but it's just as rewarding to hear from parents. Thank you, Terry, for sharing your thoughts with us!

 

"My daughters participated in WordMasters for 3 years each in elementary school.  It was a large part of our elementary’s gifted enrichment program.  I am SO happy they had this opportunity.  For my oldest, an avid reader and for whom vocabulary is a cinch, this was a great self-confidence booster, and she enjoyed the friendly competition with her friends.  For my youngest, who’s not a book lover and has a weaker vocabulary, this program guaranteed 75 new, quality words per year.  AND when she excelled because we worked so hard to prepare, it made her feel really good about herself.  Also, she will test with the SCAT soon, and I am thankful for all of the analogy practice she has had.  THANK YOU!"

Terry V., Parent

WordMasters Basics: If my school does not have a WordMasters Challenge™ program, can my child still participate?

Posted by

 

Your child can easily participate, even if there is not a WordMasters team at their school, or in their grade. Simply enroll your child online and list your home contact information.  Under "School Type", choose "Individual".  Your child's scores will be recorded and included in recognition of individual performance (when appropriate) rather than the team competition, since team scores are based on a compilation of 10 individual scores.  We are investigating alternative competition formats for students participating as individuals rather than teams, and welcome your input.
