Great oral communication is key to academic success and precedes reading and writing.
First, young children learn to speak. The focus of Language for Learning is oral expression. The program is designed to teach young children (pre-kindergarten to 2nd grade) the basic vocabulary, concepts and sentence forms used in typical classroom.
Students learn the words, concepts, and statements important to oral and written language. The program is suitable for ELL and learners on the spectrum, as well as those whose language is developing slower than their peers. Based on carefully integrated images, the program steadily builds on what was taught in the previous lessons and introduces new vocabulary and sentence structure.
The program is based on real life examples, abstract ideas, re-tells, repetitions, categorizing, and providing answers to direct questions and inferencing.
