Magic Words.

As there is a limited time in the early years of schooling to develop life-long literacy skills, it is crucial that every child be taught with the most effect tools available, to help master the complex task of reading and writing.

English has 100 commonly occurring words that, on average, make up half the words one reads. M100W is the acronym for Magic 100 Words. By using these word lists and through interaction of the activities, reading, fluency and comprehension skills can be greatly enhanced. Increasing the number of exposures to these words promote storage in long-term memory and easy recall.
