    Lasting RESULTS

    A word turns into vocabulary as you learn it “by heart.” It’s that moment when you no longer have to think about it before you use it.

    Once you reach this level of “automaticity,” the word is yours forever. You will never forget it.

    LearnThatWord is the only fully managed solution that builds this automaticity.

    You’ll meet each word repeatedly over time and explore its nuances and “flavors.” Our multimedia resources bring words to life.

    Proven study methods, accelerated by adaptive and individualized coaching, make words “stick.” New words turn into vocabulary that moves you forward.

    We are so confident in the results, we guarantee them!

Funding Sources

Basic LearnThatWord tutoring is free. Premium tutoring qualifies for funding from sources.

Title I Programs ›

Students from low-income backgrounds often enter school with a vocabulary less than one-third the size of their more privileged peers!

LearnThatWord provides targeted and differentiated remediation to close that gap. Your Title I second and third graders may also qualify for premium licenses through LearnThatWord's Vocabulary Junction campaign.

Title III (ELL) Programs ›

ELL students need to build their vocabulary quickly to be able to communicate. Vocabulary and verbal confidence are the building blocks of ELL success.

Afterschool/21st Century Community Learning Center Grants ›

LearnThatWord offers a unique mix of self-directed learning and rewards both team-based and individual effort. This make it an ideal enrichment for any afterschool program.

Students can use LearnThatWord to study words that teachers introduce during class or to expand their vocabulary at their own pace. This connects the students’ after school activities with their regular school day in a meaningful and effective way.

Accomplishments are clearly documented in the performance reports.

IDEA and Special Education Programs ›

LearnThatWord supports educators working with special needs children by providing engaging, effective, and individualized instruction and practice.

Personalized progression ensures that every student gets exactly the amount of practice they need to successfully commit words to long-term memory.

Title II-D Enhancing Education Through Technology ›

LearnThatWord is an award-winning software, designed to enhance education. Response to Intervention (RTI) data is easily available to teachers throughout the year and documented in detailed reports.

RTI is not an add-on feature at LearnThatWord: It's at the heart of what we do. The program provides individualized remediation for maximized learning results.

Schools have also successfully applied funds from
Title II-A (Teacher Quality/Professional Development),
Title IV (21 Century Schools) and
Title V (Promoting Informed Parental Choice and Innovative Programs).

Program Reviews

Please note that these reviews were done in the early years of LearnThatWord. At this time, the program's name was "eSpindle," and a lot of the current features were still under development.

California Learning Resource Network (CLRN) ›

CLRN is a program by the CA Department of Education and referenced nationwide by schools looking for appropriate and standards based online instruction.

CLRN provides educators with a "one-stop" resource to help select supplemental electronic learning resources aligned to the State Board of Education's academic content standards.

California educators with specific content experience are nominated as reviewers once they have completed a rigorous training program.

The review process utilizes the State Board of Education approved review criteria which covers three areas:

Legal compliance,
standards alignment, and
minimum requirements.
