The Write Stuff: Teaching Writing and Spelling to Young Learners
Thursday 20th September, 2018
5pm - Russian Time
Emails, shopping lists, making a note of a new word or an interesting phrase – as adults, we write things down every day. It’s easy for us to forget that our young learners will only develop these skills if they are taught how to write and are given opportunities to practise. In this webinar we’ll use activities from NGL’s Wonderful World, Second Edition to explore how best to teach writing and spelling. With lots of practical ideas you can use in your classroom, let’s help your young learners become better writers and spellers – and see how they can have fun on the way!
