Literature – Directional Language – Initial Concepts: Creating, Making and Learning!

Young children love to be active and creative when learning. Developing children’s listening skills coupled with following directions needs to be woven into the classroom program. The children have completed a ‘follow me’ picture of a story character. The teacher’s role is to use directional language and model for the children e.g. follow me – put a straight line in the middle of your page. Language: curved, straight, middle, above, below, in front, behind, to the side, right, left etc.

 

The pictures below are family portraits using white ink pens on black card. These pictures are laminated and can be used as a placemat when taken home.

Cheers Nina
