- How to Build Your Child’s Vocabulary
Written by Trisha Callella
Vocabulary plays an important part in learning to read. For example, when a beginning reader sees the word dog in a book, he begins to sound it out. When he realizes that he is very familiar with the word dog , he reads it with confidence.
But what if the child comes across the word yak in a story? If he has never heard of a yak, he may try to sound out the word, but may then begin to second guess himself. Is this a real word? Have I decoded it properly? A similar thing can happen with older students, too. A large vocabulary is critical for reading comprehension. When we talk about vocabulary, we are actually talking about four related vocabularies.
In order from largest to smallest they are:. For younger students who are still learning to read, speaking vocabulary is generally larger than their reading vocabulary.
There is a high correlation between the four vocabularies. Growth in one area generally leads to growth in another.
But is it possible for you to influence this growth? The simple answer is YES! The children look up the words in the dictionary and copy the definitions.
On Tuesday they will use the words in a sentence, and on Wednesday they will complete a fill-in-the-blank worksheet or even a fun vocabulary crossword puzzle. On Friday there will be a quiz on the twenty words. Although many of us were taught vocabulary words this way, even the most compliant kids groaned inwardly at this demotivating routine. It does, however, illustrate these common mistakes:. And this is really where the rubber meets the road.
Vocabulary that is developed naturally rather than taught using the more traditional method above is much more likely to stick with your child. Each story lesson in the All About Reading program includes direct and indirect vocabulary lessons that offer a variety of ways for your child to learn new words. The sampling below shows the range of vocabulary-building activities that can be found in AAR lessons.
Though this is perhaps the simplest type of vocabulary lesson, it is effective because it allows children to form pictures of concrete nouns in their minds. This AAR Level 2 lesson introduces children to the mountain region of the Swiss Alps with an easy-to-make minibook and an engaging story. Other vocabulary activities feature homophones , concept maps, morphemic strategies, and words that have origins in other languages such as French, Spanish, and Italian.
Research shows that children also learn a huge number of words from engaging in conversation with the adults around them. It is an indirect method that is so simple that you can start using it right after you read this article.
In a nutshell, the conversational method is simply talking with your child and expanding upon vocabulary words that your child has not yet learned.
Step 1: When a new word comes up in conversation or in a book, provide a simple, age-appropriate definition for the new word. Step 3: Encourage your child to think of his own example, or of the opposite of the new word. You can download this simple chart and hang it on your fridge to remind yourself of the four steps.
All About Reading is a research-based program, and I spend considerable time keeping up on the latest language arts-related studies. There is a large body of research that backs up our claim that vocabulary growth is critical for reading, especially as students approach high school. The program is multisensory, motivating, and complete, with everything you need to raise a strong reader.

Leave this field empty. Fantastic awesome guide! Thank you so much for your kind and generous support! We really need help here! Many thanks and god bless! Do you have any specific questions or concerns, Geraldine? We also started essentials in writing earlier this year per a recommendation on your website. Do you recommend any literature programs for after all about reading level 4? Any suggestions would be great! Any reviews on that program would also be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for making such a wonderful reading program! Great question, Tory! As you know, level 4 is the final level of the reading program. At the end of AAR 4, students have the phonics and word attack skills necessary to sound out high school level words, though they may not know the meaning of all higher-level words yet.
Word attack skills include things like dividing words into syllables, making analogies to other words, sounding out the word with the accent on different word parts, recognizing affixes, etc…. Set a daily reading time for your student to read for 30 minutes. Choose books that interest your student, both fiction and non-fiction.
You can also choose books that correlate to other subjects you are studying, such as historical fiction or Usborne books that cover science topics. The link above has several possible sources. Have your student keep reading aloud a little each day, and you can use all of the strategies that he has learned to help him decode unfamiliar words. For students who need extra reinforcement, continue the Word Card approach and make flashcards for review using this blank Word Card Template.
Thank you for your thorough research and clear guidelines as to the way vocab should be taught. This website is surely full of treasures!! I love how All About Reading level 1 teaches vocabulary and often includes an illustration. I agree, Mark! I would have loved the approach outlined here and it would have motivated me to try the word out! We love AAR and have used it for years!!
I love seeing how the vocabulary is purposefully instructed. Thanks so much!! Good day Marie, the books send is very helpful my daughter is struggling in reading and this is very thoughtful of you in helping our children I really appreciate it.
God bless. Thank you. Please make some books online free… It will guide parents more.. In this pandemic situation it would be helpful for everyone…. This was a very informative article. Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge. I am looking for something to help my children through the summer.
If you need anything else or have questions, please let me know. Let me know. I am interested in your Language arts english program recommendations- I have a rising 4th grader that has completed all levels of AAR and level 1 working on level 2 of AAS; also have a rising 1st grader that is completing AAR1.
IEW has a very incremental approach and has options for student videos, teacher videos, or both. The author describes it as a Math-U-See approach to writing.
The lessons are presented in short video segments of 3 to 5 minutes and then the student works on the concept that was taught. It also has grammar included for 1st-6th grade levels, and optional grammar dvd included in Jr.
High levels. For a different type of approach altogether, check out offerings from Brave Writer. Their Home Study Courses teach writing and literature through project-based writing assignments, such as learning all about secret codes or working on a photo journal for a month. For Grammar , here are a number of grammar programs available that have either multi-sensory components or an incremental approach.
Some of the programs focus exclusively on grammar, while some include writing as well. Here are some suggestions:. The program uses drawing pictures along with a storyline to teach parts of speech and how they relate to each other.
It is a very fun introduction to grammar but is not complete in itself. Each level teaches grammar using sentences from a single story, so there is the added fun of seeing the story slowly unfold.
The youngest the program is recommended for is 3rd grade, although it is appropriate for older students as well. Junior Analytical Grammar is for 4th or 5th graders, with Analytical Grammar for 6th to 9th graders.
Thank you so much for a lovely resource. It is very valuable for all the teachers including these professionals who teach pupils with English as an additional language.

Drawing on research-based principles of vocabulary instruction and multimedia learning, this article presents 10 strategies that use free digital tools and Internet resources to engage students in vocabulary learning. The strategies are designed to support the teaching of words and word learning strategies, promote students' strategic use of on-demand web-based vocabulary tools, and increase students' volume of reading and incidental word learning. An eVoc strategy is an electronic or technology-based strategy that teachers can use to develop students' vocabulary learning and interest in words. We use the term eVoc both to highlight that the strategies rely on digital tools and resources and to suggest the evoking of learning potential that is possible when technology and media are part of the instructional mix. As literacy educators, we need to use the tools that 21st-century technologies afford us International Reading Association, In , we can assume that access to information and communication technologies ICTs will continue to improve with the increased availability of inexpensive mobile devices and the U.

Building English vocabulary through roots, prefixes and suffixes
There is a widespread consensus in the research community that reading instruction in English should first focus on teaching letter grapheme to sound phoneme correspondences rather than adopt meaning-based reading approaches such as whole language instruction. That is, initial reading instruction should emphasize systematic phonics. In this systematic review, I show that this conclusion is not justified based on a an exhaustive review of 12 meta-analyses that have assessed the efficacy of systematic phonics and b summarizing the outcomes of teaching systematic phonics in all state schools in England since
