Repeated and varied exposures across the curriculum are key to embedding new words. We trust your judgement to decide which resources are appropriate for your pupils. Examples given are not exhaustive and some of the words will have multiple meanings. The resources are designed as teacher led starters or brain breaks for a few minutes of fun. These resources are supported by our book Top Tips for Teaching Suave Words.

There are over 900 individual resources covering 88 suave words to download and we’ll choose a suave word each Friday as a helpful prompt.
