Vocabulary size is extremely important in developing reading skills.

“Children with larger vocabularies become better readers, writers, thinkers, and overall communicators.” – Kimberly Scanlon, M.A., CCC-SLP

An excellent way to grow your child’s vocabulary is to introduce categories of synonyms and antonyms.

Introducing your child to synonyms and antonyms will help him or her to communicate with more clarity and precision. Knowing exactly what you want to say is very empowering.

In the parent guide portion of Learning to Read is a Ball a list of synonyms and antonyms are provided so adult readers can strategically replace basic vocabulary.
