Several of my students have asked for more literacy building activities as they are now doing their practice teaching in real classrooms. For the past several years I have been keeping a Pinterest board which has grown quite large but which more importantly has helped me to organise my interests and wonderful, exciting, inspiring, and creative information around my interests.
I am a very visual person and have worked for the past 25 years as a teacher and teacher trainer learning about and coming to better understand the power of the image to express meaning, build memory, prompt and support the productive skills (speaking and writing), support comprehension, make learning visible, provide comprehensible feedback, connect with the family and ohhh the list just goes on and on, which is why I use anything "visual" at all parts and stages and for any subject or age group in my classes!
So, for this reason, and in answer to my students´ questions, I thought today´s shorter entry, could be a very visual overview of several more hands-on, multi sensory, student-as -protagonist, literacy building activities. What better way to do this, then to direct you to my Pinterest Board entitled Great Literacy Activities.
