Every child wins with WOW! Words™! Yes, now you can invite every child to be a talker who grabs positive attention from listeners, regardless of that child's natural ability or skills with language. WOW! Words™ approaches vocabulary in exactly the same way in which all children learn to speak.
Children learn to speak –– and want to speak –– the words they hear others use in conversation. WOW! Words™ invites children to experience success in hearing and saying big words in meaningful and useful contexts to convey their thoughts and feelings.
WOW! Words™ approaches vocabulary in a new and fun way that practices intentional oral modeling of big words. It uses activities such as “Talk and Share,” “Talking Activity,” “Hands on Activity,” and “WOW! Rhymes” to lead children to conversational successes.
"Enthusiastic," "valuable," "remarkable," and "perceive" are examples of WOW! Words™ — sophisticated words that enrich children’s listening and speaking vocabularies regardless of writing and reading proficiency. Sorted into age-specific groups, four sets of 36 lessons teach one new word for each age group for each week of the school year. Parents and teachers can engage their confident conversationalists with the book’s rich, age-appropriate tools and resources: definitions, synonyms, pronunciation guidelines, figurative language, additional forms, sentences, short rhymes, poems, songs, discussion questions, illustrations, and hands-on activities, in addition to visual aids that organize and display word-acquisition progress.
