John Muir Trust – The Lost Words

Vocabulary Matters and The John Muir Trust invite us to work with those words from nature, such as ‘dandelion’ and ‘acorn’, that are rapidly moving to the margins of children’s lives and stories.  Working with Robert MacFarlane’s book ‘The Lost Words’, the trust provide free literacy resources available to schools on their website, including an Lost Words Explorer’s Guide, focussed on studying and thinking about this disappearing vocabulary.  All of the material is beautifully illustrated by Jackie Morris and can be found at the John Muir Website.

Check out the approach to pre-teaching vocabulary to support the teaching of vocabuarly.
