Word Selection Recording Sheet for KS1 and KS2 English

This resource sheet shares a template for children to think about the words you have chosen to teach.

Selecting a small number of key words to introduce to children is a common method of vocabulary teaching, but time is limited so choosing these words carefully is important.

Selecting words linked to specific topic (the Romans, electrical circuits) or words that have been picked because they might be especially useful (‘analyse’ or ‘subtle’, for example – Beck, McKeown and Kucan’s ‘Tier 2 words’) is likely to have a greater impact than arbitrarily choosing some whizzy words for children to shoehorn into their writing.

This activity is just one of a selection included in James’ resource pack 7 Spelling and Grammar Resources for KS1 and KS2 English which you can download here.
