It is really easy to use. Just key in what you are looking for and choose the appropriate category. WordHippo will spit out the results, as well as give one-click links to other data for the word. Quick, simple and worth bookmarking for future reference.

Wordhippo vocabulary is a webpage that makes it easy for you to take your vocabulary study to the next level. 

The difference with any other dictionary is that WordHippo tells you the meaning and has helpful vocabulary resources: synonyms, antonyms, word meaning (with example sentences), pronunciation, and rhyming words. Just type in a word in the top search bar of the website and select which resource you want to use. There is also a word form generator that will list all the different forms of a word, such as the plural form, the noun form, the verb form, and even different tenses for verbs.

Word Hippo is most useful for English words, but some resource sections have other languages such as French and German. These sections will have translation and conjugation resources for the foreign language. All of these word resource tools complement each other to give the website user a greater understanding of vocabulary.

sth to write aboutThese writing prompts encourage students of all ages to write about the things in their lives that are meaningful to them–their childhood memories and family stories, the people they love and admire, their hopes for the future, their deepest beliefs. Zimmerman says, “I have always believed that everyone has a story to tell–if only someone would ask, if only someone would listen.’’ This book gives teachers a way to draw out students’ stories and help them communicate their thoughts through writing.

words I wishThis is a book of encouraging words to help young people as they make their way in the world. Every girl and boy needs to hear them.
If you’re a young person reading this book, think of each page as a personal letter of caring words from the author to you, like the ones an older friend or relative might say. If you are a parent or teacher, you may find some of the thoughts offered echo what you may have said to a child in your life, or perhaps they will give you new ideas for future personal messages.
