Language for Living:
Oral Language Development
Oral language skills form the foundation for the reading and writing skills children will develop as they progress through school. Having a strong foundation in oral language helps children become strong communicators, successful readers, building competence and confidence as well as an overall sense of well-being.
Unfortunately, many children are missing out on important oral language skills from a young age/ Much research indicates that without a solid foundation in oral language skills, children will not develop competency in reading and writing.
Children learn best when they are engaged and interacting.
In this webinar, I aim to give some ideas of how we, as educators, can help children build strong oral language skills.
