Communication, Language and Literacy focuses on teaching young learners how to use language to help develop their thinking and writing skills, and extend their vocabulary as they begin to link sounds and letters. The activities will assist students to acquire the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes they need to become independent and confident in three areas of language development:
The learning activities are set in real life context so that young learners can relate to them and many activities address more than on skill at a time. Activity types include experiences with speaking and listening, playing with rhyme, role-play, and beginning reading and writing.
The book contains guidelines for achieving best practice in helping students develop their language skills, with a particular focus on three key concepts: imitate, interpret and comment. The planning guide sets out the essential learnings addressed in each activity so that you can plan an optimal, balanced program of learning experiences for your students.
