This pin is shared with the colleagues to get an insight on how vocabulary can be taught and the importance of using a variety of methods to engage children in the learning process using informal and formal approaches; it discusses the pros in using technology (e books and texts) to teach vocabulary in a classroom as well. Research suggests “children’s metacognitive process should be developed in order to assist in the learning of vocabulary words in depth (Fellowes & Oakley, 2014, p. 252)”

“Having a good receptive vocabulary facilitates a reader’s ability to decode words as it contributes to what is known as the semantic cueing system, which is w…

This pin is self-authored to share with teachers giving an idea how vocabulary can be best taught in an authentic environment; resulting in children acquiring and using the vocabulary in their day to day play and activities offered with supportive instructions. ‘Indirect instructions’ refers to the vocabulary learning that occurs through other activities within the classroom or centre and not through focused, explicit vocabulary instructions” (Fellowes & Oakley, 2014, p. 253).

This pin is shared with parents who support children gain a greater stock of vocabulary through play and hands on activities in addition to direct teaching and use of texts.  According to (Fellowes & Oakley, 2014) vocabulary is learnt in a social context through interactions, engagement in activities, games and play as much as through direct modes of instruction and reading. Additionally " The vast majority of words are learnt informally and incidentally"  (Fellowes & Oakley, 2014, p. 249)

Taking attendance shows which students are physically present, but asking an attendance question stretches students' minds toward actively learning as part of a classroom community.

This pin is not self- authored, but I strongly believe in this approach; using Letter-land alphabet to teach children ‘hear’ the sounds of letters; phonemic awareness in a relaxing, child friendly environment created by ‘Letter-land. Having taught and witnessed children learn successfully through this approach, I would like to share this pin with the interested colleagues.  Kauffman (2007) agrees that phonemic awareness can be taught through enjoyable activities (Shin & Crandall, 2014, p…

Letterland is a child-friendly, multi-sensory system for teaching children to read, write and spell. The secret of its worldwide success lies in its pictogram characters and their ability to make learning fun!

This pin is shared with teachers who believe they can teach reading to children with disability. It is my strongest belief that all children are given equal opportunities in reading a book  they like! "A Chance to Read" looks at the reading challenges facing children with disabilities, and what schools and parents across the world can do to help them find success. “ Childhood is a time to be, to seek and make meaning of the world”  (Department of Education and Training , 2014, p. 7).

This pin showcases the importance of creating a strong sense of ‘phonemic awareness’ in children; the ability to hear and manipulate ‘individual sounds’ in words; separate speech sounds that can be blended together to make words before one can make sense of using the alphabet to read and write. Research has identified phonemic awareness and letter knowledge as the best two predictors of how well a child will learn to read during the first two years of school (National Reading Panel, 2000).

Phonemic awareness is the ability to hear and manipulate individual sounds in words. Children must first understand that words are made up of separate speech s…

This pin discloses the important facts about teaching comprehension intentionally, allowing children to build a habit of the mind to read texts with a purpose; interact with the text in a more meaningful manner. According to Early Years Learning Framework, teachers who intentionally teach, actively promote children’s learning through worthwhile and challenging experiences and interactions that foster high-level thinking skills (Department of Education and Training , 2014).
