There are more than a million words in the English language. We remember the most common term and associate more complex or less frequent words with that. So the clever people from @mrswordsmithofficial have developed cards linking word groups together. To make this memorable to children, they developed learning tools designed by comic book illustrators. Super fun and memorable, the designs are instantly associated to the word. So clever!
