Oral language practice is very important. Some ways to practice oral language in your classroom or homes are:
1. Show and tell (make sure studetns stand up tall and speak in a loud voice and in complete sentences). This also helps the children listening to learn how to become and audience.
2. No matter where you are, in the car, in the store, or waiting in line somewhere. Ask your child questions, tell them what things are and what they do. Let them me curious, it is part of their development.
3. After a topic is studied, allow students to have grand conversations or peer talks, the teacher is the monitor in this situation.
4. Have students do retelling, this can be done with a flannel board, or a story glove.
7. Students can make their own books on tape, and then listen to them.
Research shows that early oral language development helps with comprehension and successful reading in the future.
