Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 2From $65.00$65.00 incl. GST
Connecting Oral & Written Language – Step 2 is an instructional material outlining how to teach 9 to 12 year olds to express themselves in a structured way
Although there are many types of genres, the most complex genre is narrative. The production of a narrative is more cognitively and linguistically demanding than participation in a conversation. Research repeatedly reports that narrative programs positively impact overall reading comprehension and written expression ability. Hence once skills are developed in this area, there is a flow on effect to all other forms of comprehension and written work. Within Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 2 the initial oral stage is incredibly important. From a Speech Pathology perspective, oral expression ability is the precursor to written expression ability. Too often students are required to generate narratives before solid foundation skills are established. Remember students need to be provided with multiple opportunities to analyse and orally retell familiar narratives. In this way, they are rehearsing and practicing their oral language skills and simultaneously developing a solid understanding of narrative structure. Remember do not underestimate the value of the initial oral stages of narrative skills development. This program, designed by Speech Pathologists for 9 to 12 year olds features: Narrative tasks are presented in an order of ascending complexity (i.e. pre-narrative, oral narrative retells, written narrative retells and finally narrative generation). The manual outlines how to instruct 9 to 12 year olds narrative ability and recommends over 45 suitable picture books. The classroom pack includes explicit narrative structure cards and display posters There is a first step resource – Connecting Oral and Written Language – Step 1 for 6-8 Year Olds.

A home or school picture book program for middle primary students.
The aim of Comprehension Questions for 8 & 9 Year Olds is to train parents and teachers to ask developmentally appropriate questions and to evaluate the quality of a child’s oral answer. If an insufficient answer is provided by a child, there are examples of how to assist the child to answer the question specifically with sufficient information. From 8 years of age, students should love engaging with their peers and adults. Therefore, the ability to understand questions is critical for participation in social interactions and success across all curriculum areas. Comprehension Questions for 8 & 9 Year Olds has been developed as an essential resource for Oral Language Development. At this age, questions require students to predict, interpret and evaluate. For example: How do you think the girl would feel? What do you think…? If you were the mum, what would you do? What made the boy say that? Designed by Speech Pathologists for teachers and parents for use in schools, daycare and in the home this program provides 8 and 9 year olds with: Lists of developmentally appropriate picture books and comprehension questions. Samples of 8 and 9 year old age-appropriate answers and samples of inadequate answers. Techniques and strategies to implement when a child provides an inadequate answer.
