“There is a quantum leap between acquiring the ability to speak and understand a language and learning to read and write it.” – Alan Maley
This session is aimed at helping teachers to bridge this skill gap and to develop children’s early second language literacy. We are going to look at activities designed to gradually improve very young learners’ reading and writing skills, from developing fine motor skills to the ability to recognise and subsequently produce letters, words and even short sentences. The target age range is 5-7 in most of our teaching contexts, with the possibility of extending the upper age limit in cases where the learners’ first language does not use Latin script.
See you all there!
