Italian with the Bortolato Analogical Method - Wall Poster
Product: Teaching tools
Publication date: 01/01/2019
Suitable for: Primary 1st level (ages 6-7)
The MAXI reading keyboard is a tool, in the form of a wall poster, that allows the child to apply him/herself to reading in a more systematic way, which is the study objective in first grade. This is the classroom version of the individual reading strip contained in “Italian in first grade with the analogical method”.
The posters are accompanied by a user’s guide for the teacher and parent.
How does it work? By placing the poster at the children’s height, each of them can ‘type’ their name on the wall strip and then try to compose the words suggested by the drawings below the strip. No longer a literal, syllabic, global method, but each child in the initial complexity finds his way and his strategies.
What is the objective? Improve classroom didactics and learn to read while having fun, even at home!
Guide: Includes suggestions for the teacher and parent on how to use the poster.
Wall poster: An overview for a learning on the fly.
The Maxi reading keyboard
Learn to read by typing the letters on the colourful poster
The maxi reading keyboard allows children to learn to read in a systematic way, “typing” the letters just like on the keyboard of a computer, trying to compose the words suggested by the pictures along the bottom of the strip. Available to the whole class, the wall poster strip provides a panoramic view of the alphabet and its magical correspondence between the capital and lowercase letters, and between phonemes and graphemes.
Two wall strips to hang in class or at home, which show:
both the capital and lowercase letters of the alphabet
the digraphs and trigraphs on a single key, to equalize the relationship between phoneme and grapheme
some pictures for learning how to compose the first words, typing them on the keyboard
Guide with practical instructions for teachers and parents on how to use the posters.
ACTIVITIES TO CARRY OUT USING THE KEYBOARD
By placing the poster at the children’s height, each of them can 'type' their name on the wall strip and then try to compose the words suggested by the drawings below the strip. The letters are exemplified by images of real objects, and the correspondence between capital, lowercase and groups of letters (digraphs and trigraphs) can be perceived at a glance.
