Talk Through Stories
What is Talk Through Stories?
Designed by Ruth Miskin, Talk Through Stories extends and deepens children’s comprehension and vocabulary in Reception and Year 1.
Talk Through Stories is designed to extend and deepen children’s vocabulary so that they can understand the books they will be able to read for themselves. It is so important to plan specifically and systematically – step by step – to develop their vocabulary.
How Talk Through Stories works
In Story week, we help children to get to know the story really well: the plot, the characters, and their actions and motives.
In Vocabulary week, we explore eight words from the story, specifically selected to develop children’s understanding of each word in the context of their everyday lives.
