  • Effective vocabulary instruction strategies actively engage the student and require higher-level cognitive processing.  These strategies include: using new words in novel sentences based on connections to prior knowledge, identifying synonyms and antonyms, analyzing word features, and using visual aides (Kester-Phillips, Foote, & Harper, 2008).
  • Students need to understand semantic connections among words.  It may be necessary to target understanding of basic concepts that underpin the vocabulary required to access the curriculum (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
  • In-depth knowledge of word meaning helps students comprehend what they read and helps them use words accurately in speaking and reading (Taylor-Goh, 2005).
  • Vocabulary intervention should provide opportunities for students to use target words in multiple contexts (Boone et al., 2007).

100% Concepts Primary incorporates these principles and is also based on expert professional practice.

Children need an adequate grasp of concepts to succeed in school and everyday life.  The essential concepts for each grade build in successive grades.  Missing out on early concepts causes a student to fall further and further behind.  That is why we put together worksheets on primary concepts that students in the early elementary grades need to know.  Our intent is not to teach these concepts from the ground up; rather we've written worksheets that apply these concepts to the curriculum your students face every day. 

We've chosen concrete, basic concepts, grouped them by topic area, and given the learning a curricular twist.  The topic areas are:

  • Following Directions
  • Grouping/Association
  • Math
  • Time

In each section, we've included:

  • teacher guide pages with suggestions for teaching each concept
  • family letters telling parents and caregivers what concepts their child is practicing and how they can help their child at home
  • fun worksheets for reinforcing curricular concepts

You'll also find an index of all concepts and an answer key in the back of the book.  Please note that answers given are representative of probable student responses, so accept any other reasonable responses your students might give.  The worksheets are designed for one-on-one or classroom use with students in kindergarten through grade four, ages five through nine.  Minimal reading and writing is required, so there is ample fun and learning for all your young students.  We've also varied the formats of these worksheets to keep you and your students motivated.  You'll find a variety of worksheets targeting basic concepts, including:

  • picture worksheets
  • cut-and-paste activities
  • activities for hands-on teaching
  • barrier game activities
  • simple cloze stories and poems
  • simple word puzzles
  • fun riddles and jingles
  • bulletin board ideas  

100% Concepts Primary was fun to write.  We hope you'll have as much fun using it as we did writing it.  Enjoy!
