This pack is based on an original resource devised by Elizabeth Love and Sue Reilly, Australian Speech and Language Pathologists who also have additional qualifications in education. From their knowledge and expertise working in clinical and educational settings, they have produced resources for language and literacy development, with a particular focus on oral language and verbal reasoning.
The eighty ‘cards’ in the pack give teachers and speech therapists/pathologists suggestions for varied and entertaining activities to promote speaking and listening in four key areas of oral language; asking questions, active listening, building vocabulary and using language for thinking. These can be used as whole class activities to meet curriculum targets, or to address individual therapy targets.
Ideal for use with vocabulary groups.
The pack contains many activities suitable for children with SpLD/Dyslexia.
The ‘cards’ can be printed, or viewed and conveniently scrolled through on an iPad using Acrobat Reader.
