                                                      Prof. Dra. Raquel Fernández Fernández

This workshop is intended for teachers involved in CLIL projects at infant and 1st cycle

literacy-aware and to integrate literacy tasks into our everyday practice.

TEXT 2
First, you should arrange things into different groups. It is better not to have big groups of
things, and arrange them into different bits. When the procedure is completed, organise
groups according to priority, and start with the first group assigned. Once you have finished
with all the groups, arrange them again into different groups. You can start the procedure
again as many times as you like.

    Research is proving that...

      children learn languages by unlearning other possibilities. They can discriminate any
      sound at the beginning (even in their mothers’ wombs), but learn to forget the
      sounds which are not meaningful in their context.
