Who Is The Language Learner At Our Child Care Centre In Adelaide?
Our Language Learner is a Child who enjoys the expression of word, rhyme and song. A Child who speaks often to others and listens to others as they speak. This learning style uses language to explain and to seek explanation, to question, to enjoy, and to record.
How Do The Educators Of Where We Grow Support The Language Learner?
A Child with a preference toward language learning will use rhyme and song in problem solving and enjoyment in equal measure. Consider the way many of us still remember the Rainbow Song. As you recite it there is a tune that accompanies it. This is a great example of how a Language Learner retains information. Our Early Learning Centre in Adelaide, calls on the teachings of Maria Montessori in support of language learning. We manipulate language through song and rhyme, enjoy language through storytelling, and examine language each time we use it. Teaching a child who predisposed to language learning means providing language rich environments and lessons. Educators must be prepared for questions. They also mus be prepared with explanations, and they must always be patient when these occasions arise.
Why Language Is So Important Within Adelaide Early Learning Centres.
At Where We Grow, we understand the importance of a child’s communications. We know how important an individual explanation can be for a child and we take our time in listening to their perspectives and offering our own. Our environments are always Language rich. Language learners benefit from a communicative, social learning style. Theoretical discussions and problem analysis are comfortable topics for children who enjoy this approach to learning.
The Educators At Our Adelaide ELC Promote Language Learning Through:
- Communication – this is often more than words spoken, it also means words understood
- Enjoy making up their own stories
- Seeking out extended conversations with children and supporting inter-peer communications
