Boost speaking and listening skills across the curriculum
Develop vocabulary and build confidence
Clicker Talk gives children the opportunity to explore new vocabulary, demonstrate their knowledge and rehearse their ideas for writing. It’s particularly effective for those who struggle to express themselves in written form, and for English language learners. Clicker Talk is also a great way for teachers to collect evidence of pupils’ speaking and listening attainment.
Boost core language knowledge
Listen and Say activities enable younger learners and emergent English speakers to familiarise themselves with core vocabulary. On each page, children click on the picture to listen to the word or phrase and then record, rerecording as many times as they like. All recordings are collated for review once the task is completed.
Offer alternative paths to success
Many children in our classrooms have great ideas and knowledge but struggle to express these in their writing. Talk About activities help to break down barriers to literacy and offer children an alternative way to demonstrate their understanding. The activities provide teachers with a valuable record of children’s comprehension of key topics and concepts.
Create a classroom of storytellers
Tell the Story activities break storytelling down into manageable steps, helping children to practise and internalise story patterns and language and to understand narrative ‘building blocks’. These activities are also perfect for exploring a sequence of events or the steps of a process, such as making a sandwich or the life cycle of a plant.
