Or back to our Vocabulary List

Back to our main article: English Primary Overview


Dear Parents,

We recommend that you teach your child the vocabulary words by dividing the list into four separate groups, with each group to be taught over a one-week period. This will allow your child to focus on 25 words per week and reinforce their learning effectively. Below, we outline the suggested method and provide some helpful tips for teaching these vocabulary words.

Week 1:

  1. Start by introducing the first 25 words from Table 1.
  2. Begin each day by reviewing the previous day’s words with your child.
  3. Use the words in sentences to demonstrate their meanings and encourage your child to do the same.
  4. Encourage your child to write each word, its meaning, and an example sentence on a flashcard. This will help with memorization and visualization.
  5. At the end of the week, review all 25 words and test your child’s understanding by having them use each word in a sentence.

Week 2:

  1. Introduce the next 25 words from Table 2, following the same steps as in Week 1.
  2. Review the previous week’s words intermittently to ensure retention and understanding.
  3. Continue to create flashcards for each word and example sentence.
  4. At the end of the week, review all 25 words from Table 2 and encourage your child to use them in sentences.

Week 3:

  1. Proceed with the next 25 words from Table 3, employing the same teaching methods as in Weeks 1 and 2.
  2. Regularly review words from the previous two weeks to reinforce learning and aid retention.
  3. Keep creating flashcards for each word and example sentence.
  4. At the end of the week, review all 25 words from Table 3 and have your child use them in sentences.

Week 4:

  1. Introduce the final 25 words from Table 4 and follow the same steps as in the previous weeks.
  2. Continue to review words from the prior three weeks to ensure long-term understanding and memorization.
  3. Create flashcards for each word and example sentence.
  4. At the end of the week, review all 25 words from Table 4 and encourage your child to use them in sentences.

Tips for creating flashcards:

  1. Use index cards or cut pieces of cardstock to make flashcards.
  2. Write the word in large, bold letters on one side of the card.
  3. On the other side, write the meaning of the word and an example sentence that uses the word in context.
  4. Color-code the flashcards by week or group to help organize the learning process.
  5. Encourage your child to review the flashcards regularly and use them to test their memory and understanding.

By following this method, you can gradually and effectively teach your child these advanced vocabulary words in a structured manner. Separating the words into four manageable groups and dedicating a week to each group will ensure your child has enough time to learn, understand, and remember the words. Using flashcards and incorporating the words into daily conversations will also help reinforce learning and enable your child to apply their new vocabulary in real-life situations.
