Teach a Child 15,000 Words

While making up for the 15,000 word-deficit that exists in high school seems impossible, preventing the 600 word deficit before it starts in preschool is in our reach.

By helping parents teach their children just one extra word a day in the pivotal years before preschool, you will help close the achievement gap before it starts.

Don’t let a week go by without using your words to rebel against inequality.

SPREAD THE WORD

On average, a student reading below grade level by third grade is six times less likely to graduate high school on time.

WORDS HAVE POWER

“To think health when surrounded by the appearances of disease or to think riches when in the midst of the appearances of poverty requires power, but whoever acquires this power becomes a mastermind. That person can conquer fate and can have what he or she wants.” Wallace Watts

WORD OF THE WEEK

Pleonasm: saying the same thing in fifty ways.

BUILD VOCABULARY: Never stop talking, pointing out, or explaining: “Mommy is looking for her keys; let’s put on your boots; that’s a pigeon, an oak tree, skyscraper, a pineapple.” Your child is absorbing all of the words you say.
