Event description

Description

This is a hands-on workshop that will begin with a brief introduction to the meaning of 'structured, synthetic phonics' and how use of this approach enables students of any age to make sense of the alphabetic code when learning to read AND spell.

Games are not just activities to be used as a reward or to fill the last few minutes of a session. They can motivate, encourage and teach. Whether they are used co-operatively or competitively, they can play an important role in any systematic and sequential literacy program by providing opportunities for students to practise and extend essential skills and learn new vocabulary.

We will look at a range of card games, some technologies and educational software, plus a few ideas to create simple, inexpensive games of your own.

The session will enable you to engage and teach as students as they learn to read and spell either as beginners, or to improve their skills, through explicit teaching and practice. It is a practical session; so be prepared to get involved and play! This will help you to choose games and activities that will work best with your student(s), whether their learning environment is at home, school or in a tutoring session.
