The linguistic child - loving language
Do you use words such as “dishevelled, crenellation and herbivores” with your children? Research by Isabel Beck et al. explores the tiers of language and how we can teach words that the children will need for lifelong learning. You will hear how broad rich language experiences can be deepened by the power of story, rhyme, drama and song to fire children’s interests and imaginations. A range of activities will be shared that will help build a repertoire to be used in your setting.
• explore your own attitudes to reading
• identify strategies which can enable children to develop children’s vocabulary
• investigate the practical applications of higher order language.
