The potential of quality literature in the classroom: Teaching language, play, phonics and beyond with picture books
Live-cast Thursday 30 August 2023
Discover the journey of a picture book from creation through to the classroom. We speak with Anna Walker, award-winning author and illustrator, about her CBCA-shortlisted picture book Snap!, and discuss the love and care she puts into crafting memorable reading experiences for children. Then, we’re joined by educator Imogene Cochrane-Bond who explains how Snap! has enormous potential in the primary classroom, especially for teaching phonics, language, and early reading skills. With practical activities you can use your classroom, and an open dialogue between an educator and an author, this video is not to be missed.
