Using picture books in the multilingual classroom
++REGISTRATION NEEDED – scroll down ++
Storytelling is at the heart of Irish culture and picture books can be found in every classroom! But how can we best exploit this amazing resource in the multilingual classroom? In this Learning Together session, we will look at practical classroom activities to harness the potential of picture books with younger and older learners. We will discuss how they can be used to develop language skills and to foster a sense of identity. Both picture books and silent books will be used in this workshop.
