Closing the Vocabulary Gap

In 1st and 2nd grade, children need to learn 800+ words per year, about 2 per day.

Children need to learn 2,000 to 3,000 new words each year from 3rd grade onward, about 6-8 per day.

Children need to encounter a word about 12 times before they know it well enough to improve their comprehension.

To keep up a child needs to learn at a rate of 2000-3000 words per year. To close the gap, they need to exceed that.
