Text (slide 20):
Vocabulary refers to the words we must know to communicate effectively in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Vocabulary plays an important part in learning to read. Children use words in their oral vocabulary to make sense of the words they see in print.
Vocabulary is also important in reading comprehension. Readers cannot understand what they are reading unless they know what most of the words mean.
