My neighbourhood: literacy in context (digital download)
by Jan Hagston
My neighbourhood contains thirteen activities designed to support students to develop literacy skills in the context of their neighbourhood. While the majority of activities focus on reading, writing and oral communication, some activities include problem solving and numeracy.
The length of activities varies from a few minutes to those that extend over a number of sessions.
Each activity contains information for the teacher alongside activity sheets and/or handouts for the students. In addition there are a number of skill sheets to support students in completing the activities. The activities also encourage the use of technology.
My neighbourhood is also available as a digital download.
