About Vocab Master s Challenge
This competition is held annually to check the understanding of vocabulary. This competition consists of two rounds, Level-1 and Level-2. Through this competition our motive is to create awareness among the children to understand the meaning and use vocabulary as per the context of the statement.
There has been a big push in the last 10-15 years to improve the students vocabulary skills, but do you know why? Here are the top 5 reasons why vocabulary is so important:
1. It Improves Reading Comprehension. Research has shown that kids need to understand 98% of the words they read to understand what they are reading. Improving vocabulary skills will improve their understanding of novels and textbooks.
2. It’s Important to Language Development. Children who develop a rich vocabulary tend to thin deep, express themselves better and is motivated to read more. Improving language and literacy skills early in life will help them be more successful academically and in communicating with the world.
3. Communicating Ideas. Successful communication or “saying what you mean” is dependent upon a good vocabulary. Using the right words when talking, makes you a more effective communicator.
4. Expressing Yourself in Writing. Having a good vocabulary to draw from can help you write more effectively. Students need to use a more formal tone when writing – not conversational language – and to do that, they need a richer vocabulary to tap into those words we don’t use when we speak.
5. Occupational Success. Researcher Johnson O’Connor found that “a person’s vocabulary level is the best single predictor of occupational success.”* Success in the business place depends on your communication skills.
