    I dont know that I have any wonderful ideas but one thing I make sure is that the vocab is implemented in their reading and most importantly their writing...
    that is why they need to know it right...
    I challenge my kids to learn new words and use them in their pieces of writing...
    I put up charts of more exciting ways to say the common words like happy, good, fine...
    I also discuss using your senses...
    if writing about a setting..what did it look like sound like feel like...
    I make them close their eyes and picture it...
    I guess my point is that my kids went from using good to magnificent and suddenly instead of then..
    but only bc I constantly reinforce how "exciting and interesting it is to read a story or piece of writing that uses this vocabulary..."
    Is that what you mean...
    SOrry if I am off track...what words are you currently focusing on??
    Vocab is always hard...
    write back..good luck/..
