Product Description
This book can be used in your classroom to build vocabulary and also to extend your lessons into the home. It was designed by a reading specialist to help you in your efforts to improve your students’ chances of becoming successful readers. It is a well-known fact that the more literacy activities done in the home, the more prepared children will be. A lack of quality conversation is a big problem in many homes, especially those of ELL students and those in low SES situations. This resource can definitely help because the activities encourage and require conversation between a child and parent as the child is learning about the common everyday things around him/her.

Teaching this basic vocabulary will give your students a storehouse of words they can use to talk about and write about their daily activities. This storehouse of words will also increase their reading comprehension by:
• improving fluency;
• giving them what they need to make inferences;
• and helping them determine the meanings of unknown words by using what they know.

It will also improve their writing because they will have a storehouse of domain specific words to add precise details to their narratives and informative writing pieces.

Research has shown that children who enter school with strong vocabularies can typically learn seven or eight new words a day, while children with weak vocabularies typically learn only one or two words a day. Which type of student are you creating?
