There are many sources of spoken language, song, stories, videos, face-face communication, poems and so much more.
The uptake potential is different for our children, digital interaction with has less uptake than the face to face interactions that have a social context.
We then discussed this text and the key ideas breaking it down and identify the vocabulary groups we we would discuss with the children. We talked about the ways this could become a much larger piece of learning.
Some of the vocabulary we discussed, boisterous, engaged in play, favourite place to play, tugged on the laces, powerful red beak.
We want children to understand that words keep company with each other because words have power and if we gift words in group children will know to use them in groups in way that make meaning.
