After the US Education Department’s report showed continuous erosion in the vocabulary skills among students, Michigan educationist Dr. Manisha Shelly Kaura started an online initiative, Vocab Tunes, to improve the situation. The report showed a steady decline of vocabulary knowledge among school kids for the past 50 years. Manisha and her father Dr. S.R. Kaura devoted their time to find out the root cause of the problem. During their research, they discovered that lack of knowledge about root words is a major reason behind the poor vocabulary among country’s young minds. Vocab Tunes’ online learning programs aims at making kids aware about the Greek and Latin root words thereby enriching their English vocabulary.
To make learning an easy and fun activity, Vocab Tunes has come up with an exciting concept of biweekly dance contest for schoolchildren. The aim of the competition is to make kids fall in love with learning new English words while shaking their legs on select educative songs of Vocab Tunes.
In a recent interview, Xavier University, Cincinnati alumnus Manisha says, “Singing and dancing is a whole mind/body experience, also students are more interested in learning through music and songs other than monotonous classroom activities. Therefore while preparing our Vocab Tunes’ programs we focused on making it a melodious learning activity.”
Manisha along with her father, created a four-level K-12 vocabulary program to help kids enhance vocabulary. The father-daughter duo has authored two vocabulary textbooks named ‘Rockin’ Root Words’ (Prufrock Press, 2010) to help young minds build their word bank.
