An area of my ICT leadership involves me looking at the community and ways that I can help meet the needs of parents. We use spelling words in a book and word rings in Year 0-2 and find that as we have many ELL (english language learner) parents we, as a school, need to think of ways to share ideas and information with them. The language barrier can be quite significant and make it hard for students to practice work at home if parents are not sure what to do.
I created these help videos on youtube to show parents easy activities that their children can do at home with their support. One video is on using their spelling words at home and the other on using their word rings. Have a look and share these with the parents in your class if you feel they are beneficial!
