Developing Teaching Skills
We met with the group of Grade 3 teachers we are working with again this week and what an enthusiastic bunch they are. This workshop was primarily to support the teachers in developing the skills necessary to facilitate the different elements of a phonics lesson so the workshop was very practical.
The teachers were able to use the resources, i.e. chalkboards, fans, flashcards and picture cards during the workshop. Through this they developed an understanding of how to use the resources to facilitate multi-sensory activities so catering for visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learners.
Later this week we will be visiting each teacher in their classroom to help them to start putting in to practice what they learnt in the workshop.
