The Illustrated Dictionary of Everyday Things
This book contains 69 common objects with parts labeled. This book can be used by teachers and parents to help prepare children for meeting the Common Core State Standards and being successful on the PARCC assessment. These words will be the foundation students/children need to: build broader concept knowledge, strengthen word choice, expand application of words across contexts, build word relationships, extend concepts, make logical inferences, increase understanding of multiple meaning words, use knowledge of individual words to predict meaning of compound words, increase understanding of figurative language, and visualize as they read. ALL of the above lead to increased reading comprehension. In addition, these words will help students in expressive tasks such as retelling/recounting, summarizing, conveying ideas accurately, writing informative or narrative pieces, and talking about or writing about their own experiences with precise details expected in schools today. Let's give the children the words they need.
