Developing vocabulary for sentences

Many of the most frequently used words in English are difficult to describe or understand without context.

With this in mind it’s important not to simply ask children to memorise lists of words but to help them understand the words they learn by talking about how they can be used in spoken sentences.

The Vocabulary Builder includes activities to help children build their spoken vocabulary and grammar. Use it at the early stages of children’s phonics learning.

It’s also ideal for interventions and for supporting children that don’t speak English as their native language.

For more advanced vocabulary activities you can use the ‘Speaks Write’ book which includes every word used in the Word Wizard Phonics scheme.
