20AUT42 Building Children’s Word Power

20AUT42 Building Children’s Word Power

In this session we will look at how important it is to make children word rich through a variety of ways. Alphaboxes and the use of a question generator chart will be integral to this discussion. The creation of a talking storyboard will be linked to the story of the, Matchbox Diary. Receptive and Expressive language games will be modelled and the central role of talk topics for children of different abilities will be emphasised.
