Product Description:

Don't be fooled by the price tag on this product, the cards in this box are more than just a game. This box is full of vocabulary words 550 in all with fun illustrations, definitions, pronunciations, and more. Each card is about the size and weight of a playing card and is punched in one corner (place on the included ring to use on the go). On the front of each card is an original drawing in full color, which acts as a mnemonic and on the reverse is the word, part of speech, pronunciation, definition, sample sentence, synonyms and antonyms. For example, Card #101 features "bombastic." The definition given on the back of the card is that it is an adjective, which means "excessively confident; pompous." The drawing on the front of the card is of a young man wearing a shirt that says "the man" and he is saying of himself "I'm the bomb" he is being pompous or bombastic. These original little drawings work well for visual learners, and are a great option for learning new vocabulary.

You can use these cards to play the "Picture Words" game by placing any number of cards, picture side up, on the table. The object of the game is to guess the definition of the words using only the picture. If you guess correctly, you collect the card and the person with the most cards wins the game.

Another option for play is "Marie's Wordsmith" game. One person, the wordsmith, pulls a card from the box, shows it to the other players, and reads the part of speech, pronunciation, and definition on the back of the card. Each player writes a sentence using the word, while the wordsmith copies the sentence from the back of the card. Mix all sentences together and earn a point every time you can choose the sentence that was copied from the back of the card.

There is a lot of information packed on each of these cards, and they will help anyone make a visual connection to vocabulary words. Marie's Words can be used at any grade level kindergarten through 12 for some real vocabulary fun! - Donna

Strengthen vocabulary. Visual learning.
Mandi V on Oct 5, 2022
I have to children who are very visual learners - one with autism, the other with ADHD. Their language skills are not strong. I thought this would be a great way to appeal to their brains and build their vocabulary.

I believe mnemonics and pictures can help with long term retention, plus they look fun. I like for at least some subjects to feel fun!

These cards are excellent. We are replacing a lost set. Intended as SAT prep, they are also amazing at improving (no surprise!) vocabulary in the entire family! We love that there are pictures to reinforce right brain learning and long term memory. They are about 10 dollars more expensive than current SAT prep cards on the market because they are more effective with the pictures!

My son is High Functioning Autistic and I think these cards will help him with learning new words.

This came highly recommended by one of my homeschool groups. My son is a visual learner so I think the pictures with the definitions will help him.

I saw a friend's set and they looked wonderful. My kids have done workbook vocabulary up to this point, and it's not sticking...at all. My friend's kids seem to be retaining what they're learning.

I hope my 3rd grader can begin to work on his vocabulary.I have heard good things about Marie's words
Adedotun O on Jun 28, 2016
We are visual learners, and I'm hoping this will increase our vocabulary in a fun way.

Fun game to start improving all our vocabulary
Megan S on Jan 8, 2016
A fun way to learn more vocab. We have just been learning one word per week together (my kids are 9th, 6th and 3rd grade). There are other fun games and things to do that I need to investigate. The pictures make it easy to learn and remember the meaning. My 9th grader just told me that he sees/hears the word, "abate" everywhere now! And, he didn't know the meaning prior to Marie's Words. "Abate" was the first word we did. It comes with a ring, and I keep the ones we have learned on it.

Is there a word list included? I have received my box of words but didn't see a list of the words that are in the box. Is there one available so I know what words are in the box?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: would recommend joining the Marie’s Words Facebook group and you will be able to message the company that way. I didn’t see a contact number on the Marie’s Words website.

We found these cards to be very user friendly and engaging. We displayed a subset of the cards on the fridge each week.

Fun supplement for all levels
I bought these cards for my high schooler who set them on the shelf, but my 9yo picked them up on her own. Since then, all of my children have really taken to them. They have made up a game that they play in the car. They flip through the cards we are working with for the week, they each make an original sentence and pass the deck to their sibling who they deem had the best sentence. That kid then picks a new word and becomes the judge. It has all five kids working together. Although it is being used differently than I anticipated, it is working better than I imagined. As a bonus, I have learned a few new words myself.
