Making Good Communicators completes a quartet of resource books for teachers, teaching assistant and speech and language therapists. This resource offers activities which promote the specific areas of communication that underpin all areas of learning, including emotional literacy. By the upper end of Key Stage 2 it is assumed that children will have developed competence in effective communication. However it is now recognised that many children need targeted help to develop these skills. This sourcebook covers the key areas outlined in the Spoken Language National Curriculum. It offers practitioners easy access to a range of activities that can be used in a variety of settings, eg whole class, large or small group or pairs.
"This is a useful resource for speech and language development, making it a great addition to any classroom." - Helen Punter-Bruce, specialist leader for additional educational needs and inclusion manager at Parkside Primary School in East Sussex
