Teaching a new word alongside its common word pairs increases the speed and efficiency of vocabulary learning and shows children how to use it.
Cartoons are a very effective way to present vocabulary. Images carry visual meaning, while laughter releases dopamine which activates long-term memory.
80% of new words children learn are acquired through direct explanation rather than ‘figuring it out’ through reading.
Five minutes of daily vocabulary study helps children develop word consciousness and accelerates self-driven learning.
