Integrated Oral Language was specifically written to support the oral language strand of the new Primary Language Curriculum for Stages 1 and 2 (Junior Infants – 2nd Class).
This book is suitable for First Class.
Contains 25 theme-based units focused around 25 separate poster images to appeal to the interests of pupils.
Each unit presents a variety of engaging activities to develop and practise oral language skills, including role plays, barrier games, story creation, debates and discussions.
Each unit contains photocopiable support materials for the activities that require them.
Each activity is linked to a specific Learning Outcome, enabling teachers to select the activities and Learning Outcomes they want to address with their class.
The book is structured to allow flexibility of use: teachers can select the activity/activities according to the Learning Outcomes they have planned in their Language programme of work. In addition, each theme is a stand-alone, so teachers can decide on their own sequence.

This book includes 25 posters, provided as a digital download. A password to download these will be provided upon purchase.
Each poster can be downloaded and displayed on an Interactive White Board, making it easy for teachers to use it for whole-class teaching or in station teaching.
The posters contain a mixture of colourful art and real-life photographs to engage pupils and encourage discussion.
The themes have been chosen to assist teachers approach oral language as a discrete lesson, while simultaneously allowing teachers to integrate most curricular areas, such as SPHE, geography, history, maths and science.
Many of the posters can be used to integrate both the English and Irish languages, as the images selected lend themselves to language development in Gaeilge.
