Jumpstart! Talk for Learning presents a collection of multi-sensory games and activities that will jumpstart children’s use of effective talk in the classroom. This book offers practical and engaging ideas ranging from brief games to extended lesson suggestions.

Specifically written to help teachers with the direct teaching of talk skills required by the National Curriculum, activities in the book encourage children to:

• participate in group and class discussions

• use exploratory talk and share a range of points of view

• use talk imaginatively to develop understanding

• develop individual presentational talk

• take part in active drama sessions

Jumpstart! Talk for Learning includes a range of classroom activities that can be used in literacy lessons and integrated across the curriculum. This essential resource will help teachers develop children’s use of talk to understand one another and get things done together.
