Below, you will find 19 videos covering some areas of Language for Living: Vocabulary at the Tip of your Tongue. I have worked for years in creating this resource, initially for our school, so we would have a complete programme for Oral Language and vocabulary development.
Before beginning any areas of the Language for Living resource you may find it useful to watch the corresponding short video. Videos included are;
Introductory video, tongue twisters, debates, barrier games, vocabulary (words of the day), photographs, object & talk cards, category dice, co-operative learning role activities, scenarios, story starters, Homonyms, synonyms & antonyms, grammar cards (word class), idioms, overused vocabulary, feeling vocabulary, question card activities and the ‘Tip of the Tongue’ meeting.
I hope you find the videos helpful in getting you started with Language for Living: Vocabulary at the Tip of your Tongue.
This point is only applicable to the IRISH curriculum:
With the 2019 review of the learning outcomes of the New Primary Language Curriculum, some of the Learning Outcome numbers mentioned at the end of the videos are no longer applicable. I am working on creating an updated template of the numbered Learning outcomes which I will post when complete.
Words of the Day: Junior classes (Language for Living Box 1)
Words of the Day: Middle and senior classes (Language for Living boxes 2 & 3)
Object & Talk Cards
Learning Role Cards
Homonyms, Synonyms & Antonyms
Grammar/ Word Class/ Parts of speech cards
Question Cards/ Show and Ask
Please note, in trying to make the Language for Living resource more compact, Teddy Bear Ted has been removed. The class can still use the ideas suggested with their own classroom teddy.
Tip of the Tongue Meeting
Tip of the Tongue meeting is a short morning meeting, usually carried out once a week, recapping new vocabulary recently taught, idiom of the week, tongue twister of the week, discussion on feelings, reporting on current news affairs etc.
