Got this link from my sibling, and donated 260 grains of rice (reached vocab level 43 in that one try – don’t know how good or bad that is, but at least it gives you a bench mark to compete against 🙂 ) .
Looks like you can try as many times as you want and so, if you have a kiddo you want to vocabularize (that’s a new word I coined), this is your chance!
Tried it several times, and that first try has been my best one yet. Learned something new. An example, did you realize that diametrically opposite is a tautological term? Apparently diametric means completely opposed. No wonder I got it wrong – I selected round.
Update: I really like this site. What it has that sets it apart from other click-here-to-feed-a-hungry-mouth sites is the side effect of education. To paraphrase the FAQ, there are 50 levels, and it is apparently very difficult to exceed Level 48.
For the competition 😉 : I have oscillated/ranged from level 36 to level 47 (yes, I touched 47 – I was on a roll).
All said and done, the most appealing aspect of this site is that the rice donations are totally independent of the level. Even kiddo can range from levels 1-3 and still donate 20 grains of rice per correctly clicked word. And yeah, I’ve almost gotten to 5,000 grains (and counting 🙂 ), and he is nearing 2,000.
Update #2: Never knew about these Yahoo awards. There are some good web sites.
