“Vocabulary is the best single indicator of intellectual ability and an accurate predictor of success at school”. W.B. Elley
Teaching vocabulary is important, both on the part of parent and teacher. This article is directed more at classroom teachers, but parents can benefit from reading it, too, and helping their children to develop a robust vocabulary (and thereby improve expressive language output and receptive language input). Vocabulary instruction shouldn’t just be limited to the classroom.
“We think with words, therefore to improve thinking, teach vocabulary”. A. Draper and G. Moeller
