Synopsis

My Town Word by

Wordbooks are important building blocks for developing reading, writing, speaking and listening at foundation level. This workbook will help build English vocabulary using scenes from the world that children know. It is an essential tool in the foundation phase classroom. The book takes children from the known to the unknown by showing familiar scenes and introducing new key words. The simple activities on the last page extend visual literacy, sorting and language skills. You can read this book in many ways. Here are some ideas: BEFORE READING: * Children talk about the pictures in their own language. * Children give any English words they know for the things in the pictures. WHILE READING: * Children read the English words, using the small pictures as a cue. * Children cover the small pictures and find the objects in the main picture. * Children cover the labels and try to reemember the English words. AFTER READING: * With books closed, children draw pictures to illustrate the English words * Children write about one of the pictures in their own language. * Children tell each other stories about the pictures. There are three Wordbooks so far in the Junior African Writers Series (JAWS): My Farm 9780435899318 My Town 9780435899325 My School 9780435899301
