How To Improve Literacy Without Even Trying and 250 Words Represent Over Two-Thirds of Captioned Television illustrate very simple ways to incorporate literacy skill building into your everyday life.
It works. Really well.
Incidental exposure to high frequency words in captioned media enhances acquisition of those words. By intentionally teaching those same words you build an even stronger foundation.
We’ve taken the 250 Words that represent over two-thirds of captioned television and made three sets of flashcards.
Using the flashcards and captioned media, parents and care providers without education backgrounds can easily boost literacy skills for children and adults with and without disabilities, anyone who is deaf or hard of hearing, anyone.
There are a million ways to use flashcards – teach vocabulary, build sentences, match simple to complex definitions, label items in your house, use them in visual schedules, begin a communication board, the possibilities are infinite and really exciting.
We want everyone that wants to use these flashcards to have them, so you can download the PDF for FREE.
