365 Words Every Kid Should Know by Lauren Holowaty & illustrated by Martina Motzo

365 Words Every Kid Should Know is the perfect book for every KS2 / KS3 classroom or for home to help children develop their vocabulary in a fun way. With a new word for every day of the year, this handy book provides the spelling (with helpful tips), meaning, word origin and example sentences to ensure the word is being used in the correct context.

The words are organised into interesting topics making it easy to build on the “word a day” idea. Perhaps try a “theme of the week” to help children build their knowledge of words around a topic or make links between words. Children will love to learn about families of words linked to “Food & Drink”, “Borrowed Language” or “Words of Art”. With 24 themes altogether, there is plenty to choose from. One of my favourites is “Boo!” – a fantastic collection of spooky words.

There are tips about silent letters, homophones and other similar words. Fun facts about word origins and super illustrations help to bring the words to life.

Thank you to Buster Books for this brilliant book!
