Why Teach Vocabulary? (from the Center for the Improvement of Early Reading Achievement)

One estimate found that “Printed School English” contains roughly 88,000 different words.
The average child, by the end of high school, may know about half or 45,000 different words.
If a child enters 1st grade knowing about 6,000 words, then they must learn about 3,000 new words per year.
Children learn about 3,000 words a year, but only about 300 from organized instruction.
Informal estimates suggest that active teaching can cover 6-10 words per week — 400 per year.
Since approximately 300 words account for 65% of the words in texts, rapid recognition of these words during the primary grades forms the foundation of fluent reading.
