Vocabulary instruction is more effective when words are taught in associative groups, so the lists in WORD WORK are set up by topic or features. The 70 lists included in this book are grouped into five categories: Months & Seasons, School Setting, Science & Health, Social Studies, and Special Activities. It is easy to locate a list that will be linked to the classroom curriculum, time of year, or special interests of the students.
Each list is followed by questions or tasks (word sorts) that will prompt critical thinking and provide interactive and repeated exposure to the target vocabulary words. Additional suggestions for manipulating and working with the words are included in the appendix.
Utilizing these lists will make simple speech sound drills more meaningful, and will augment language, fluency and even voice work by enriching speech room practice while providing meaningful vocabulary support.
