Abstract
The First 4,000 Words project will develop and test a multimedia system for ensuring that students in Grades 1-4 know the meanings of the 4,000 most frequently used English words when they hear them and see them in print and can pronounce them. The target population is English language learners, struggling readers, or children of poverty who have small vocabularies relative to their peers.
