Speaking to a few early level colleagues, they’re looking for some new ideas to revitalise what they are already doing in reading and writing. Here are some images that take what we teach the little ones but present it in perhaps a new way! If you know of someone in your school who is doing something interesting with literacy, then let us know and we’ll post it on the blog!
I really like the use of the written charts to help support the learning in the classroom. If only I could draw the nice little pictures to go with them … 🙂
Your P1/2 class will think you’re the next Picasso when you get going… Wait till you’re teaching P7, then you’re allowed to question your artistic abilities (before the kids do!). Loving the charts too- already got one planned for Reading Workshop on Monday will let you know how it goes!!
Yes let me know how it goes … I guess you are right, when I eventually get my move up the school I will really worry about my artistic skills!
With the development of Big Writing in writing in our ASG, when speaking to some early years practitioners, they have opted to go down the line of ‘Talk the Big Talk’ – the foundation stage to Big Writing.
I don’t know much about ‘Talk the Big Talk’…maybe you can get some of your early years folks to post what they’re doing…
I’d love to hear more about the ‘Talk the Big Talk’ … it would be great if you could get someone who is using this to post some ideas on here!
I’ve popped a bit on ‘Talk the Big Talk’ on the blog. When the early years staff in my school have developed this within their classrooms further, I’ll ask them for successful ideas which we can share on the blog.
