10) 1.1 Tom exhibits the narrative stage of language development which typically begins around age 4. This is the stage when children can tell stories and relay events with a clear and logical sequence. His ability to retell granny's stories to his peers at the daycare centre is a prime example of this stage. Complex sentences and storytelling reveal a more mature grasp of language, exceeding his age expectation. 1.2 Tom's grandmother can employ the following strategies to promote and strengthen his language skills: - Use open-ended questions: Instead of asking yes/no questions, granny could try asking him questions that require more complex answers, such as "What do you think will happen next in the story?" - Encourage creative storytelling: She can motivate Tom to create his own stories. This enables him to use and practice his language skills, introducing new words and concepts into his speech. - Read more advanced books: Gradually introducing books with higher level vocabulary can push Tom to expand his language abilities. - Play word and story games: Activities like role play or puppet shows can reinforce the narrative skills he's developing and make language learning more fun. 1.3 As a teacher, you can advance the literacy development in children like Tom through: - Conduct storytelling sessions: Regularly conduct sessions where children can narrate a story and discuss them. This enhances their conceptual understanding and language skills. - Introduce varied texts: Provide a range of books, magazines, and newspapers to expose the children to diverse vocabulary and sentence structures. - Encourage writing: Motivate them to write their own stories. Writing can help children analyze their thoughts and generate complex sentences, enhancing their language skills. - Implement group reading: Group reading can enhance interaction among peers, promoting language development. - Use multimedia resources: Use of audios, videos, interactive softwares can make learning fun and engaging, leading to better language acquisition.
