The following blog update comes from Norma Ruettimann, CALA Training Development Manager:
Attention all Early Learning and Childcare practitioners – the Highland Emerging Literacy Group have just released some helpful short video clips which focus on the key messages from Words Up. These will be a useful tool to support consistent implementation in your ELC settings.
Oral Language Videos – Adult/Child Interaction ‘Words Up’
The Words Up Key Messages have been created to support the development of Oral Language through the promotion of adult/child interaction. To support the Words Up Key Messages a number of videos have been created to allow practitioners to reflect on how these key messages feature in day-to-day interactions between adults and children.
- The videos all follow a similar format:
- Introduce the Key Message(s)
- A short video clip
- A reflection task to identify where they key message(s) featured
- A section of the video clip again showing the Key Message(s).
