Oral language is not only essential for literacy development - it influences all our social and academic outcomes, plays a vital role in our self-talk - and helps define the sense of who we are. It is our tool for learning, thinking and being.
This book provides the busy teacher with practical easy-to-implement ideas to promote and invigorate oral language in the classroom.
The sounds of language (i.e. phonics) are introduced here as you’ve never seen them before.
Written exercise suggestions are a small side salad rather than the main course. (Learners will love not having to fill in another worksheet or push a pencil for long periods of time.)
Every page enables learning to be vigorous, emotionally satisfying, thorough and successful.
