Individual books include:
Antonyms, Level 1— teaches how to choose and use opposites in activities that connects past knowledge to new learning. Students learn to find true antonyms, build antonyms by adding word parts, and exchange antonyms in stories and in games.
Associations, Level 1— teaches how to recognise associations between words and that organising vocabularies via word associations means easier storage and word retrieval. Students learn ten ways to make associations: colour, shape, use, actions, category, synonyms, antonyms, and rhyme.
Attributes —teaches how to use words to describe things in many different ways. Students match pictures with words, name describing words, match describing words, sort pictures, name by attribute, find describing words in sentences, and list describing words.
Categories —Sorting into categories is an efficient way to store information and a basic language-learning skill. Children with language and learning delays benefit from direct instruction as they often miss common characteristics among objects or do not develop sophisticated sorting/grouping skills. Your students will learn the many ways items can be grouped and that items in one group can belong to different categories.
Concepts —Teaching concepts is key to learning the math, science, language arts, and social studies curriculums. Concepts from seven categories from grades 1-3 form the focus of this Spotlight book: quantity, degree/intensity, numbers, time/sequence, addition/subtraction, calendar dates, and space/direction.
Synonyms, Level 1— teaches that synonyms mean the same thing with shades of differences. Students learn how to recognise a true synonym and how the slight differences in meaning influence usage.
