Our colourful safari park poster will give children plenty to talk about
Speaking is still assigned the Cinderella role in many literacy lessons and can often be ignored. Yet, speaking is an amazing workout for the brain. It not only offers social interaction, but also sharpens mental skills. So, in this month’s fun exploration of discussion and conversation, children will clarify their thoughts, organise their ideas and formulate their opinions. Furthermore, as others listen to them, their confidence as speakers will grow.
Throughout your focus on speaking, keep the Poster , ‘Safari park’ on display somewhere prominent. (See the November 2008 issue of Junior Ed PLUS, or download it.) The children can use it for inspiration, while enjoying the challenges of speaking up.
