Boosting confidence for child-child interaction in pre-school - Sara Hillyard

In this presentation, pre-school teachers will reflect on how they feel about stepping back to encourage child-to-child interaction. Routines, songs and games are great opportunities to scaffold children's language learning and boost confidence (of teachers and learners!) to encourage oral peer exchanges. We will look at some ideas that help children move from a secure and controlled place for producing the language to challenging them to interact amongst themselves with confidence and independence.
