ANTICIPATE…OBLIVIOUS…SYNOPSIS…CARICATURE. What do all these words have in common? They are multisyllabic words that appear in classroom texts. Students with language and learning disorders may have difficulty pronouncing these words. An inability to correctly say these words may lead to difficulties spelling, retaining, and discussing these words in classroom activities.
As students progress through the grades, the classroom material becomes more vocabulary-laden. Students who cannot pronounce these words will have more difficulty learning and remembering these words. Saying Big Words is a unique resource that provides a complete and sequential program to teach students to pronounce longer and more complex words. All activity pages are provided on a cd-rom to save time at the copy machine.
This 188-page book and cd-rom are broken into 4 stages:
-Synonym Word Practice
At each stage are practice activities for students, including many games that will get your students “Saying Big Words.” Your students will love Syllable War and Gomuku.
The appendices include word lists that provide additional polysyllabic words divided into categories of: Social Studies words, Science words, Math words, Articulation words, Noun Plurals, and Verb Tense forms.
