Mediation and read-alouds: The potential of picturebooks in early language learning

Mourão, S. (Keynote speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Sharing two picturebook read-alouds, I will demonstrate how teacher mediation and re-reading picturebooks can help children make sense of the inter-animation of pictures, words and the gaps between. My aim is to show how picturebooks support the move from reception to production for an age-appropriate learning experience.
