Moved by the reports of US Education Department that showed continuous erosion in the vocabulary skills among students, Michigan educationist Dr. Manisha Shelly Kaura started an online initiative, Vocab Tunes, to improve the sorry state of affairs in this regard. The report reveals 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. After an extensive research, they discovered that lack of knowledge about root words is one of the major reasons behind the poor vocabulary among country’s young minds. Vocab Tunes’ online learning programs play a significant role in making kids aware about the greek and latin root Words thereby expanding their English vocabulary.
To make learning an easy and fun activity, Vocab Tunes has introduced an exciting concept of biweekly dance contest for schoolchildren. The competition was conceptualized to make kids fall in love with learning new English words while they make some creative moves to the select educative songs of Vocab Tunes.

A Xavier University, Cincinnati alumnus Manisha says in a recent interview, “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 enrich their vocabulary skills.
