A Programme For Building Literacy Skills with Children
A ‘What – Why – How’ resource to encourage and develop a love for oral language for stories and games for young children. There are ideas on how to make language “come alive” so young children begin to be excited by what they hear and see. Children, from an early age are encouraged to write and read about themselves and their families. Suggestions are provided using the eight SMARTS based on Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory – Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist. This ensures all types of learning are considered. A colourful game for you to make is provided in the centre of this book. From that you can develop your own with your children. Have Fun!
Recommended ages: 3-5+
