Reading and storytelling contributes to language, literacy and brain development. Story time contributes to the child’s fond memories that they can remember for a lifetime. Reading aloud to babies and children is important in their early years as it impacts on their social and emotional development and future learning.
The Stage 2 Child Studies students have been working hard on their Literacy Kit Assessment ready for Mrs Boag’s Year 1 students at Elizabeth Grove Primary School. The Year 12’s were required to choose a children’s story book and make an appropriate activity to bring the story to life. The books and activities were donated to Mrs Boag’s class and we hope they bring much happiness and joy for years to come.
