The Benefits

Encourages independent learning

Comprehensive and formal enough to be used by serious adult writers, while intuitive enough to encourage young writers to explore and learn independently.

Boosts reading and writing confidence

Word Sauce! is a mouthwatering read, even when you’re not writing. By putting the joy back into word learning, we’re helping to boost confidence in both reading and writing.

Builds a red hot vocabulary

Some words in Word Sauce! young writers will know, while others will be completely new. Build and strengthen that vocabulary while becoming a master storyteller.

Develops transferable skills

Stories are how people communicate, socially and at work. Developing strong, word-rich story skills now, will pay dividends for years to come.

Plugs writers into the heart of literacy

Word Sauce! is built with the support of Prof Susan Neuman, Professor of Early Childhood and Literacy Education, and Chair of the Department of Teaching and Learning at NYU's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
