Talking Stories add sparkle to Interactive Whiteboard lessons

These Grade 1 children speak English, Afrikaans or isiXhosa at home. Since the Talking Stories are available in all three languages, their teacher uses the software to provide a bridge from home language to the language of instruction in the classroom. Children hear the story in their home language (with the lovely home language voice support) to build meaning. Then they transfer to the language of instruction to learn to read and to participate in the interactive literacy games and activities for whole class learning.

By using Talking Stories, the children at Bridgeville Primary School have doubled the pace of reading acquisition.
