The Primary Picture Dictionary is a beautifully illustrated dictionary of more than 600 key words for Primary students of English. It has been specially designed to appeal to young learners throughout the world.
The selection of lexical items has been made using Waystage, and is based on Garnet Education’s extensive experience of producing materials for Primary education.
The vocabulary is grouped in a number of broad themes, and low-frequency words have been avoided. Words have sometimes been included on the basis of association rather than strict categorization, since children do not always categorize items in the same way as adults.
There are two sections (Opposites and Verbs) at the back of the book that feature adjectives and verbs alphabetically.
Comprehensive indexes at the back of the book help readers to locate words and serve as a useful tool for the teacher. Pronunciation guides are also included.
