The second edition of this comprehensive and practical book outlines the theoretical underpinnings for vocabulary and acts as a ‘how to’ guide to developing word learning across the school and curriculum.
It provides an ideal platform for the provision of effective vocabulary development, and provides a structured approach to promote language development, in children of all abilities. This rigorously tried and tested approach is an outstanding resource that will be an essential addition to any school and classroom, and is also an important addition to the materials used by speech and language therapists.
Word Aware 1 is packed full of easy-to-implement activities, worksheets and resources that can be put into practice immediately with individual students or groups, whole classes and throughout the school, and is an effective tool to teach children who speak English as an additional language. The resources contained in this book are photocopiable and contain downloadable materials.
The second edition of Word Aware 1 brings:
- An even wider range of ready-to-go vocabulary activities
- Fine-tuned teaching techniques
- Enhanced resources to develop children’s independent word learning skills
- A step-by-step guide to developing a whole school approach
Word Aware 1 is an invaluable tool for teachers and other professionals looking to support children as they broaden their vocabulary. It is particularly suited to children aged 5–11 years but can easily be adapted for older children.
