First Writing ActivitiesFrom $65.00$65.00 incl. GST
Introducing writing tasks into the early childhood years.
At this early stage of writing development, it is accepted that a student’s oral language ability will exceed their writing ability. It is therefore expected that a student’s writing may be more limited than what they produce orally. First Writing Activities incorporates opportunities for students to hear and experience various written forms followed by oral rehearsal before commencing the written task. Pictorial and/or visual support has also been incorporated to support each of the text structures included in the resource. This program is designed to work alongside an oral language program incorporating news-telling and story-telling activities. Programs such as, PLD’s Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills and Picture Book Retelling provide support for developing a strong oral language program. Over time editing skills can be introduced and encouraged for students operating at the early phase of writing development or above. Remember that to learn to write, students need to practice writing, so let them write! For the junior primary years. Designed by speech pathologists for students in the junior primary. A large range of writing genres are designed to move students from ‘role-play’ writing into early phonetic writing and finally into writing with emerging conventional spelling. Short pictorially supported writing tasks that involve an adult providing an oral model, along with opportunities for students to orally rehearse the sentence(s). Three levels of templates are designed to cater for the range evident in junior primary classes (i.e. the delayed, age appropriate and advanced students). Literacy, language and motor assessment points at the base of each template. This publication is mentioned within the ‘Whole School Literacy Strategy’ booklet on pages 11 and 13.

Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills for 5 Year OldsFrom $65.00$65.00 incl. GST
Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills is an instruction manual with explicit details on how to develop show and tell, activity retells and news telling for 5 year olds
As children enter school as five-year-olds they continue to make the steps that move them from conversations to literate language. This can be a daunting step for all involved but Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills is designed to make the journey easier. The strategies used in this book are linked to later developing narrative skills, just as pre-literacy skills are the foundation skills for spelling and reading development. It is critical that teachers and parents assist children in the development of language and narrative skills as they are a crucial component and predictor of later interpretative reading and writing success. Developing News Telling and Narrative Skills attempts to break down news and early narrative skills into simple sequential steps for teachers and parents to follow with children. The program trains parents and teachers to identify where children need to develop and strengthen their skills and presents specific techniques and supports to do so. The program provides simple activities and visual cues that are designed to be incorporated into classroom and home environments utilising activities that occur every day. The program provides: assessment and monitoring procedures planning and programming supports visual supports and activity ideas techniques and strategies to develop and accelerate language skills. News telling is a challenge for students and teachers, however, practice is the key and the more students are exposed to the language associated with telling news the more their expressive language will improve.
