This Week’s Thought of the Week…

Vocabulary building is vitally important for developing reading and comprehension skills in children, as well as in adults.

The evidence suggests that teaching and learning 10 new words per week can make a huge contribution to a child’s, an adolescent’s (or even an adult’s) language and literacy abilities (Beck, McKeown & Kucan, 2013).  While the classroom is the obvious place for such learning to take place, parents can also make a significant contribution to their child’s vocabulary bank.
