Vocabulary is key to successful play. Apart from developing their literacy skills it will give them the knowledge and language keep to play on topic. Every time I start a new topic I drill the language associated with that topic during discrete lesson time. Using flashcard I model the language using a sentence and have the children repeat it back. We repeat this activity and build on it daily (it only takes a few minutes and makes a good lesson transition). ​

You can add connectives, adverbs etc. This lesson may seem old school but it works. It is the repetition of this drill that imbeds good language structure in their speech. Make sure the teacher holds up the flashcard picture (with words if children are reading) throughout the whole drill. P.S this way of teaching language can be used for tricky words, Irish vocabulary etc. Grab your free copy of the above lesson here!
