With Pictures Reading, the child/student must decide for themselves what is happening in the book, which leads to questions: What do you think? What does my friend think? Is the character happy or sad?
Pictures reading helps children develop a sense of self long before they can read, children respond to images in an effort to place themselves and the others in their lives into the world around them. It is therefore highly important for children from their early years to begin with Pictures Reading.
Levels Taught: Nursery, Lower Primary, Upper Primary
I am child- friendly with a good sense of humor that helps ease and relax pupils in order to create a type of relationship that makes our interaction cooperative.
I taught at Cedar Oak School as a preschool/primary teacher and a Reading Defaults Teacher from 2014-2017. I also worked as an English/Diction teacher at Heirs Of Promise School in 2017.
I possess teaching skills that enables pupils with inadequate reading and problem solving skills to properly interpret and comprehend through one on one interaction that goes beyond text book exercises.I was awarded for public speaking and reading skills at Meadow Hall Public Speaking Training in 2016.
I apply different teaching concepts until desired goals are achieved. My aim is to support pupils and help them develop academic independence as well as sound critical thinking, emotional and psychological skills that are not limited to subject teachings.
I do not teach route learning technique except when necessary, in the case of multiplication tables; I strictly teach with concepts which help pupils to relate with their immediate environment at home.
