Presenter: Fiona Sullivan, SPELD SA Literacy Coach & Trainer
Session 4: Jolly Grammar – Grammar Focus
The workshop will cover content featured in the Jolly Grammar Handbooks 1-5.
Prerequisite: Jolly Phonics – Session 1 & 2 or a detailed knowledge of Synthetic Phonics.
An understanding of grammar supports students to become capable communicators, use a wider vocabulary and have a clearer understanding of how language works. The most dramatic improvement from the Jolly Grammar program will be found in the quality of student writing as they become familiar with the role of grammatical features, different types of words and word groups to convey information and represent their ideas.
This training session will examine:
- The sequential and cumulative framework of Jolly Grammar
- Parts of speech, proof reading, punctuation, vocabulary and word choice to support clear and effective communication
- Practical ideas and experiences to compliment the teaching grammar across year levels.
Suitable for teachers, SSOs, tutors, pre-service teachers and parents.
Lunch is included if attending both sessions.
