I watched this video with my mentee because using mentor texts to promote writing ideas is a great way to model to first graders.  She will be blocking next year and teaching reading, writing, and social studies.  Giving students an opportunity to write, draw, and act out mentor texts is an excellent way to develop vocabulary and practice speaking clearly.

Speaking, language, reading and writing are all interconnected. Love the idea of doing the poster to help the children create their role playing, and contribute to class discussion of the text, characters, conflict/resolution for prewriting activities.

The students are listening as well as participating speaking in full sentences while answering and or asking questions while reading the book.

Using pictures is a great method to increase the vocabulary. Having the teacher give students the opportunity to ask questions and role play the story first, then organize their ideas and write their own interpretation of text develops writing skills .

    Summary

    Here we follow Broadmead Infants School's approach to literacy over a week long period, and gain an insight into the strategies they use to encourage enthusiasm about the subject in their pupils.
    The school based in Croydon has a very mixed intake of pupils, many of the whom have little experience of books.
    Teachers emphasise the importance of guided speaking and listening from Reception onwards, in an effort to get children organising and vocalising their thoughts. Role play, freeze-framing and the dramatising of stories and characters from books all help prepare children for ambitious writing.
    Later, Headteacher Alex Lundie reflects on the pupils' achievements. She believes that children with lower levels of experience deserve to have high expectations made of them, so long as the right support is in place.
