Are the Word a Day books suitable for Special Education Needs?Whilst we cannot claim to be a dedicated SEN program, we have had a lot of fantastic feedback from customers with SEN issues.
Our focus on humorous illustrations and the structure of our content (just one word a day) makes word learning feel like fun rather than work, minimizing the stress involved in reading and writing, and allowing children to engage directly with meanings.
Repetition is key for children with memory difficulties or low literacy. Our Word a Day books offer plenty of opportunities for this. The more that children talk about new words and get used to using them in conversation, the better. Building an oral vocabulary is key to increasing confidence and skill.
We recommend that SENCos or supportive teachers order an individual set to use with small groups and 1:1.
