Word Express: The first 2,500 Words of Spoken English - Illustrated
Authors: Gerald Stemach, MA, CCC / William B. Williams, MA
Ideally, children learn new words in their home, school, and community environments. When this doesn't happen, intervention becomes necessary, and Word Express has been designed to fill precisely that need.
This thoughtful program has taken the basic 2,500-word expressive vocabulary of successful lst grade children, divided it first into 10 levels, and then into 5 familiar domains: domestic, leisure, commerce, academic, social. A picture library illustrating each noun, verb, and modifier is indexed to the vocabulary. It's logical, it's informal, and it works easily into any classroom structure. Useful protocols for monitoring progress can be ordered separately.
Intended for use by speech/language pathologists, ESL teachers, reading specialists, and all primary grade teachers who wish to enrich their students' vocabularies.
