These are the words children really NEED to know!

• 62 common objects with parts labeled

• Index for easy reference and activities

• 52 “Tricky Questions” that include making analogies, critical thinking, compare/contrast

• Includes the names of REAL THINGS in their everyday life, necessary for conversation and detailed writing about their everyday activities

• Will improve reading comprehension and learning in general

These words will be the foundation students need to:

  • build broader concept knowledge.
  • strengthen word choice.
  • expand application of words across contexts.
  • build word relationships.
  • extend concepts.
  • make logical inferences.
  • increase understanding of multiple meaning words.
  • use knowledge of individual words to predict meaning of compound words.
  • increase understanding of figurative language, and visualize as they read.

If you want your students to be better at expressive tasks such as retelling/recounting, summarizing, conveying ideas accurately, writing informative or narrative pieces, and talking about or writing about their own experiences with precise details, then you must GIVE THEM THE WORDS they need.
