Vocabulary level is strongly correlated with reading comprehension. Children with restricted oral vocabularies comprehend at lower levels. Vocabulary size in kindergarten is an effective predictor of reading comprehension in the mid-elementary years. The size and effective use of a child’s vocabulary is an important indicator of future literacy ability. Vocabulary, not early reading skill, is the best predictor of later reading comprehension. By third grade, many children can read words, but they fail to understand what they read due to vocabulary limitations. Children with restricted vocabulary by the third grade have declining comprehension scores in the later elementary grades.
