Extra program materials

These pages contain some handy extras to compliment the great range of products that are available from SANDPIPER, specifically based on books.

Oracy Chatter provides some additional information and ideas for using the oracy programs in classrooms and in the clinic setting.  Much of the information is based on workshop presentations for the oracy programs.  There is also some information around frequently asked questions, that might provide some direction if you are running the oracy programs in your school.

Downloads has a range of extra resources and handouts that can be downloaded.  For example: the resource – Talking about books is no longer available, however the ‘Talk about’ ideas for a number of books have been offered as free downloads through this section.  The 'Talk about' tips provide outlines of various books, and will generate heaps of conversation – ideal for parents!

More stuff - a technical term for more stuff.  There are a number of interesting clips here for these who enjoy a giggle and for those who are more serious minded - but all of the clips are about language or literacy.  So look through these and enjoy a less formal approach to communication.


Finally, Web-links offers some interesting sites that people might find of interest.


J&R Press


Please note:  Sandpiper will no longer be distributing the publications from J&R Press.  Sandpiper has very much enjoyed working with Jim and Rachel over the past several years, however as their range continues to expand, and Sandpiper focuses more on the resources line, the range has been handed over to Pro-Ed.
