We had a great session reading activities in the morning – running races, putting the story together, reading a google generated newspaper article. This is all so immensely creative.
But the most laugh we got out of activities with pictures. Scientists from Oxford
carried out an experiment on their students and found out that our memory is visual.
In other words we see and remember in pictures. Try remembering something from
your childhood. Doesn’t it appear in pictures?
So using pictures or photos in the process of teaching is essential. I will certainly use some of the activities we have done and would like to pass them on to my colleagues
as I’m sure they will love them, too.
Sian is an unbelievable source of great websites, as well.
I have the list and we all can use it.
That’s all folks.
