Practical Guidelines on the Development of Pre-writing and Writing skills

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Literacy Department within the Gozo College in collaboration with the Occupational Therapy Department of the Gozo General  Hospital organised  two parental meetings aimed at K1 parents of students attending the Gozo College schools and Gozo church schools.  Ms. Elaine Ciantar, Head of Department Literacy and Ms. Theresien Mizzi, Occupational Therapist shared with parents practical activities they can develop with their children at home to help them enhance their gross motor and fine motor skills in preparation for the development of writing.

A selection of resources currently available in the Kindergarten classes of the Gozo College were also shown to parents.  These resources are being shared amongst the Kindergarten classes through a rotation system and they allow for a hands-on approach to teach pre-writing skills.  The College embarked on a multisensory approach to develop pre-writing skills in the Kindergarten classes where students are being exposed to different forms and textures for that special tactile input.

A booklet  (Activities for the development of pre writing and writing skills) summarising the practical activities which can be done at home was given to parents through the individual schools.

Layshia-Rose Camilleri, a Year 2 student from the Gozo College Qala Primary is the first student from the Gozo College Primary schools to be awarded the title of Reading Star.  The Reading Stars campaign was launched by the National Literacy Agency in collaboration with the Department of Curriculum Management, to promote a love for reading anywhere, anytime.  Students are promoted as role models when they read in public spaces. 

Layshia- Rose was nominated by her teacher, Ms. Tracy Vella Haber and she was ‘caught reading’ while her peers were doing some class work with the teacher.  Layshia-Rose fosters a love for reading and she takes every opportunity to stop and read.  She was awarded a letter of achievement and a book voucher sponsored by Merlin Library. 

More nominations are welcome.  We look forward to catch more reading stars and promote more students as reading role models.
