See and Learn Vocabulary 1 provides activities and step-by-step guidance to help parents and educators teach young children to understand and say 60 common first words. It is the first step in See and Learn Language and Reading – a structured teaching programme designed to teach children with Down syndrome to talk and to read.
See and Learn Vocabulary 1 includes 2 sets of 48 pictures, together with a detailed guide and record sheets. The pictures provide visual support for teaching spoken language. New words are introduced steadily and taught through a sequence of 4 simple looking, matching, selecting and naming activities.
The vocabulary taught in See and Learn Vocabulary is selected from the words most commonly learned first by most children. The activities are intended to supplement natural, everyday opportunities to learn language with the additional support most children with Down syndrome need to learn to communicate.
In addition to teaching early vocabulary, See and Learn Vocabulary 1 teaches children to look carefully and identify the differences between pictures in matching and selecting games that can be used later to teach a variety of new vocabulary, sight words and phrases. It also encourages young children to pay attention and engage in teaching activities for short periods of time.
