Improving Vocabulary 5-6 by Andrew Brodie

Improving Vocabulary contains a wealth of vocabulary for pupils to discover, discuss and use in appropriate contexts, helping them to prepare for the new English grammar, punctuation and spelling test. Series of photocopiable books to use both as a tool for extending vocabulary and as a stimulus for speaking and listening activities. Each book will feature sets of illustration cards together with matching word cards, becoming increasingly complex throughout the series. Teachers will use the cards as the focus for discussion sessions, in which they will ask the pupils to identify the illustration which best represents each word. Pupils will be encouraged to explain why they feel that word is most appropriate. Pupils will use the cards to play matching games, etc.
