Teaching vocabulary

Improving the vocabulary of children in their early years has a huge impact on their educational attainment as they move through school.  Jacqui and Liz explain how children learn new words, and how to use this knowledge to teach vocabulary so children can successfully learn, remember and use it.  You will learn about factors affecting vocabulary development and how you can overcome them, and ways to help children with word finding difficulties.  The training also includes strategies to pre-teach and review vocabulary and  ways of using visual support to help children understand and use abstract vocabulary.
