Follow our BLOG and contact us directly for support and resources for EAL Pupils. Please find below some useful resources to support EAL pupils remotely during these current school closures.
Combined resources from the Big Bear Banter and P4-7 Induction Packs. Now including lots of links for each topic to online resources eg. online flashcards, animated stories, YouTube videos, songs and interactive games. This document is a live document which will be updated with new online resources.
MES have now put their flashcards online with audio. Great for use on chromebooks and during the current online learning. (slight warning in that uses American english so need to be careful using some of the vocabulary for UK English speakers eg trousers – pants)
Some schools have developed their own ways of keeping track of their Teddy Talk and Big Bear Banter sessions, but just in case you haven’t done so yet, here are some record sheets to keep track of sessions that are taking place for Teddy Talk and Big Bear Banter.
EAL Highland have developed some Smartboard Resources to support Teddy Talk and Big Bear Banter activities. Sadly, the file type cannot be imported into the Blog so if you would like a copy of any of these please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your email address and which resource you would like to see and he will send it on as an attachment.
If anyone develops their own Smartboard resources then please share with Peter. Thanks.
