Overview - REAL-WORLD PW CURR - COMMUNITY
Based on the popular software, each of the six curriculum programs provides
a step-by-step way to help students with limited or no reading skills learn
200 words. Designed to complement Real-World Picture Words Activity Cards.
Each 102-page curriculum includes reproducible student pages, teacher suggestions,
and assessment tools. Each of the 200 picture words are illustrated, defined,
and used in simple sentences. The words are taught in groups of five to increase
both comprehension and retention.
HOW THE CURRICULUM WORKS Words are taught using a two-page teaching
guide. One sheet has a reproducible activity page for the students to use for
reference. The other sheet is a lesson plan for teaching those five words. The
lesson plan includes a systematic way to help students learn what each of the
five words means. After reviewing the word, its definition, and the word used
in a sentence, the teacher presents activities detailed in the curriculum. Students
answer questions about the words, participate in hands-on activities, and listen
to stories in which the words are used in context. The engaging format promotes
active learning. Open-ended questions encourage discussion.
