The importance of equipping learners with the right vocabulary to express themselves or perform specific task cannot be over stated. Yet there is a stage that comes before that.
This is the stage of engaging with words they see and hear. When learners come across a word, they must be able to decode the word, understand what it means and make sense of it for themselves before they can begin to apply it in any context.
Words help learners become:
- Better listeners when they understand the meanings of the words being used.
- Better speakers when they are equipped with the correct words to express themselves.
- Better readers when they can make meaning of words on the page.
- Better writers when they can string a group of words together to form a sentence in order to communicate their ideas to others.
The New Spellings and Phonics Book with dictation exercises contains words from preschool up to secondary school level for this purpose. It is ideal for daily spelling work in class with children of varying abilities including SEN, EAL and deep level. There are dictation sentences for words worked on during the week.
The dictation sentences provide teaching opportunities for punctuation and hand writing practise.
Keep it simple for the best results. This book will help you to do so.
