Oral Language Activities to take the Struggle out of Literacy
Speaking in Sentences offers ideas and suggestions for the standard components of any oral language programme. Its activities will help students speak in full sentences, use correct grammar and predict text in reading. This resource caters for a wide range of learning abilities and can be used in the classroom, for children with special oral language needs, for homework or for ESOL programmes.
Teachers and students alike will be drawn to the oral language programme offered in the Speaking in Sentences series. Books 1 and 2 have been developed to assist junior to middle primary students. Books 3 and 4 have been designed for middle to senior primary. The activities cater for a wide range of abilities – some for general classroom use and others for children who have special needs in regard to oral language.
One notable strength of these books is that they take a novel and varied approach to the standard components of any oral language programme, such as plays, current events, poetry and speeches. They also contain ideas and suggestions for other effective ways of encouraging students to speak clearly and to use correct grammatical structures. Ultimately, with these books, students will be speaking in sentences with growing accuracy and confidence.
