This book is the winner of the Primary Books category at the 2004 Education Resources Awards and Highly Commended in the Books for Learning Teaching category of the 2004 TES/NASEN Special Needs Book Awards. Written by two experienced speech language therapists, who have worked extensively alongside mainstream teachers, this book provides activities that are both teacher and child friendly. It contains a collection of graded games and activities designed to foster the speaking, listening and understanding skills of children aged from 5 to 7. The activities are divided into two main areas: understanding spoken language - following instructions, getting the main idea, thinking skills, developing vocabulary, and understanding inference; and, using spoken language: narrating; describing; explaining; predicting; and, playing with words. The features: each activity has a clear aim, simple instructions, and requires minimal equipment; activities may be carried out by teachers, classroom assistants or volunteers; incorporates user-friendly opportunities for assessment, target setting and evaluation; includes photocopiable material to support the activities; many of the activities can be used by speech language therapists, and the book can be used as an effective part of a speech and language programme; and, promotes the skills outlined in Speaking and Listening in the English National Curriculum Key Stage One.

By Alva
This is a an amazing resource for a busy teacher to make a real difference to the language and listening skills of her class.

Everything is in the book all the resources and the children will love the activities.

I tested my class after a term of using this book and they were so much better at really listening and remembering.
