Word Aware 3 is a comprehensive, practical and engaging resource that focuses on teaching vocabulary and word learning skills to children aged 6 to 11 years who have vocabulary learning needs.
For many children, particularly those with communication and learning challenges or those whose home language isn’t English (EL), the vocabulary of the classroom can be a barrier to learning. This book outlines how to best support these children who require extra help, offering concrete, easy-to-implement activities and resources for use in small groups, to maximize the impact on learning and open up access to the curriculum.
Word Aware 3:
- Takes a highly practical, evidence-based and curriculum-focused approach to vocabulary learning that supports a broad range of learners and aligns with the science of language and reading (SOLAR).
- Includes photocopiable and downloadable planning, intervention and evaluation resources
- Provides staff training resources and an overview video presented by the authors
This book can be used as an adjunct to Word Aware 1, or as an intervention on its own. Although it is most suited to children aged 6 to 11 years, it may be adapted for older students with significant language and learning needs. It is an essential resource for teaching assistants and will also save time for resource teachers and speech and language pathologists who are keen to establish effective vocabulary interventions.
