Educators involved in teaching English vocabulary to Primary school children will find Wordsift particularly useful. It is a handy tool where you can paste a sample text copied from anywhere and words from the passage appear as a cloud,which can then be discussed and the use of which can be understood even better with a visual word map or Google pictures or youtube videos.Sample sentences from the said passage for the use of the chosen word additionally helps the students grasp the meaning and usage of the word being discussed thereby building up vocabulary. The demo video below helps one understand the tool better.Students can use this tool on their own to help build their vocabulary using texts from their current textbooks as well as any other books they read.
