The Power of Play for Language Development

The original post, The Power of Play for Education and Language Development  which fist appeared on this blog, was reprinted, with my permission, of course, on a website called Games for Educators with the following lovely introduction:

“Every once in a while, we find an article on the web that is so impressive we ask for the right to re-post it. That’s what we’ve done with this one, by Marisa Constantinides. It’s a serious, in-depth look at the roll of games in Langauge Development. Enjoy!”

How to Become a Teacher Educator

This was my first guest blog post for Karenne Sylvester’s blog Kalinago English. Karenne was wonderful in encouraging me to write this post ! The response and comments I got back from this post were both heartwarming as well as food for further thought.

This post was nominated for the category of “Most influential post” in the Edublogs Awards 2009, so I am doubly pleased!

Kalinagoenglish is one of the blogs on my highly recommended list. Karenne Sylvester is an experienced and passionate blogger and her writing style is immediate and expressive. She is also a very experienced teacher of Business English and teacher trainer and many of her posts offer insights into her teaching and materials design.

Making books with Children

My second guest blog post appeared in a blog with a completely different focus – preschool education! In this post, I talked about book projects, making books of various types with your young classes, books of stories, books of poems and more, both in the classroom with conventional materials as well as ideas for some digital storybooks.

Deborah Stewarts’ blog, TEACH PRESCHOOL must be the joy of the primary and pre-primary teacher, whether teaching English at school or as a second language, her blog (as well as her other blog Little Fingers that Play) are highly recommended reading for teachers of young learners.
