Education Scotland, in partnership with Comhairle nan Leabhraichean, invites you to join in this fun-filled Glow TV session. This session will be of particular interest to children and practitioners working at early and first level literacy and Gaidhlig. The session is led by Linda MacLeod who uses storytelling in Gaelic and Gaelic song to support the development of Gaelic language with 3-5 year olds in a fun and motivating way. These are key strategies for taking forward immersion.

The session lasts approximately 30 minutes and is delivered through the medium of Gaelic.
