Vocabulary Checklists and Record Sheets - Checklist 3 - Second 350 Words
A check list of most of the third set of 350 words that children learn to understand and to say
The words have been chosen based on research studies of the language development of English speaking children. No two children will learn exactly the same set of words but this list provides a guide to a core vocabulary that is common. Complete Checklist 1 (first 124 words) and Checklist 2 (second 340 words) before using this checklist. You will be using them together as children will understand words on this checklist before they can say or sign all the words on the first checklist.
The checklist should be completed and retained by parents as they will have the most complete knowledge of their child's communication skills. Some parents will welcome the help of a home teacher or speech and language therapist as the checklist is also to be used to help to plan language teaching activities.
NB: The library resources are available for ADSA library members to borrow. Unfortunately we do not sell direct to the general public.
