Each day students learn new words as part of their classroom programme, recognise words from their increasing vocabulary or encounter words that will help them read fluently. This three-book Essential Sight Vocabulary photocopiable series supports these processes by providing high-interest activities with instructions that can be followed quickly and easily. Students are engaged in the process of seeing, discussing, defining, understanding and using words in spoken or written language.
The series can accompany students’ learning at a level and pace appropriate to the individual. Each book is divided into three learning levels with a further section providing revision and consolidation activities. Teachers are able to record and comment on student progress.
Essential Sight Vocabulary can be used:
- By classroom teachers of primary grades who wish to enrich the vocabulary skills of their students in everyday classwork or homework assignments
- As a remedial tool for students experiencing difficulties in written and spoken language
- As a resource for students learning English as a second language.
The three books in the series progress in difficulty and cover the following:
- Book A: The Basic Words
- Book B: Everyday Words
- Book C: Words for Reading Competency
