Gaeigle Picture Books

I found these two books in the bookstation for €5. Gaeigle can be very hard to teach but picture books can be a great aid and resource to help you in your Gaeigle lesson.

The children can follow the pictures and then put meaning onto the words you are saying and in the older classes reading.

The two books I bought are both my Niamh Sharkey – Stiúcaí Stiúgtha and Ar an mbóthar.

Both books I feel can be used at all class levels and you can tailor the lesson to your classes needs. For example in the older classes, you could read half the book and get them to finish it in groups and create their own ending and then at the end of the week you could read the actual ending.

How do you use picture books?
