Pre-Teaching Vocabulary

How do you teach new vocabulary to learners? 


The Building Vocabulary for Better Literacy PowerPoint within the Literacy Toolkit, suggests that in order to store new words effectively we need knowledge about three key areas:

  1. Word Knowledge (semantics)
  2. Phonological Awareness
  3. Kinaesthetic/ Visual Representation

The Pip St.John – Pre-Teaching Vocabulary resource provides free teaching materials which can be used when teaching learners new vocabulary.
