Information on Vocabulary

Vocabulary = words

Children generally will understand a word before they are able to use it.

Unless we know a range of words our ability to use language to communicate will be limited. Essential building blocks for sentences will be:

  • Nouns:  (Names of things) dog, house, cloud, monument
  • Verbs:  (action words) sit, run, sleep, jump
  • Adjectives: (describing words) big, red, hot, happy
  • Adverbs: (describing how you do something) happily, quickly
  • Pronouns: (words which stand for nouns) I, we, it, they
  • Other:  under, through, next, yesterday, because, when, so
