Who are they for?
SnapWords™ Nouns are perfect for introducing very young children to words. Since nouns are concrete objects, they are easier for the very young to learn. Colored illustrations attract and hold interest.
How do they work?
The images embedded into each word ensure that children gain their first words as easily as a camera snapping a picture and storing it in memory. Beyond learning to recognize the words, the tools on the reverse of each card move children past calling out words to really understanding what they mean and how to use them in sentences. The reverse of each card displays the word without a visual and describes a hand motion for the word – a necessary tool for young learners. In addition, a sentence using the word and coordinating with the visual on the front of the card focuses children’s attention on the meaning of the word and how it is used in everyday communication.
The nouns list includes 59 nouns, including animals, landforms, space, people, geography, seasons, weather, body parts and clothing, school-related words, and others. These concrete words are perfect for beginning readers and may be combined with sight words from other lists for sentence-building. Each card is 5.5″ wide by 4.25″ tall.
