Building student vocabulary is crucial to their understanding of curriculum content and the world. For students who have difficulties memorizing and retaining knowledge of key vocabulary, repeated access to visual and engaging stimuli is the key.
Topic cards, such as those used for a Word Wall display, or student vocabulary book, provides a simple and visual tool for teaching the names of common fruits and vegetables. Due to differences around the world, some items are listed with several names (e.g. mandarin/clementine); therefore it is recommended to choose which card/name is most applicable for your students.

- 65 x colour topic cards (with clipart image)
