*As of March 2020, due to school closures amid Covid-19, I used this blog as a space to upload educational lessons and activities to help those who wished to avail of it. As requested by many I will keep the activity suggestions posted here to use at your own free will under the menu heading of ‘Covid Home School’. Julieanne x

help incorporate the Aistear curriculum framework into the
junior classrooms – a framework for learning through play.

Language for Living
I am a firm believer in developing oral language and vocabulary skills in children. I developed ‘Language for Living’ (also referred to as Tip of the Tongue), which contains a wealth of inspiring resources for the development of oral language and vocabulary development.
- Offers planned, intentional teaching of vocabulary…words of the day/ overused words and expressions etc.
- A progressive, considered method to narrow the word gap
- Hands on, ready to use.
- Adaptable to the learning needs of different children.
- learning through play, games and activities.

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the worldNelson Mandela
We can share with our children a wealth of words…by closing the vocabulary gaps for children in our classrooms with their peers, we can offer them the vital academic tools for school success, alongside the capability to communicate with confidence in the world beyond the school gates.ALEX QUIGLEY, CLOSING THE VOCABULARY GAP (2018)
