Words Rock Educational content:

Words Rock! uses teacher-developed, curriculum-rich literacy-building activities to grow word-smart kids.

Essential topics (fun learning)

  • Growing Spelling Skills 
    Code making and breaking Spelling becomes an exciting code-breaking challenge to give kids vital strategies so they can deal confidently with the various building blocks of words. Words Rock! stimulates them to understand and remember how word parts fit together. Kids are then empowered to make educated predictions about which blocks might fit where in different word contexts.
  • Growing Word Power - Vocabulary building and extension
    Words Rock! soaks kids in language - enriching their knowledge and providing a broad word base to build on, including idioms, clichés, word roots, borrowings from other languages, archaic expressions, alliteration, connectives, synonyms, antonyms, homophones, onomatopoeia, collective nouns, metaphors, similes, puns, tautology, irony and hyperbole.
  • Growing Grammar & Punctuation Know-how
    Grammar and punctuation skills are the essential frameworks of all written English. Words Rock! gives children the grounding and understanding they need to produce their own clear, concise, correct and meaningful texts.
  • Positive Pre-Literacy Activities for Young Learners
    The preparatory activities in Word Rock! draw young children into using words in meaningful ways through play long before they master more complex skills such as using grammar and punctuation or handling pencil and paper.

Curriculum references & National benchmarks

The content in Words Rock! is developed from outcomes specified in State language curriculum documents. Email us for the Australian/New Zealand curriculum guide and also for the Scope and Sequence guide.
