So much knowledge and experience
It is a great privilege to work with the Grade R and Grade 1 teachers from two schools to support them in developing multi-sensory teaching techniques to aid language skills. They are becoming more enthusiastic as relationships and levels of trust develop.
Recently a workshop focussed on activities the teachers could facilitate to support the children to play with words / alliteration and develop awareness of syllables. Teachers come to each workshop with a wealth of knowledge and experience so we always like to begin these workshops by giving space for teachers to share their own ideas in relation to the theme. In addition we build on this knowledge and introduce a number of new ideas. During this workshop the teachers had time to become familiar with the resources provided and practise facilitating the new activities.
