Teaching New Vocabulary

 Research clearly shows that children learn words through book reading more thoroughly when provided with a “child-friendly” definition of new words as they come up in the reading. Child- friendly definitions explain the meaning of a new word in terms that children will understand by relating the word to objects, concepts, or ideas they may already know. Pointing to an illustration of a new vocabulary word, or having the child point to it will also help them to learn it.
