OBJECT TALK

Object talk is a teaching method that consists of using a physical object or a visual aid as a topic of discussion. Object talk is based on the idea that material things have the potential to convey information. It is believed that teaching through observation of objects helps students recognize concepts better. Object talk at TIPS is done by the facilitators (teachers) in short bursts with 5 to 6 sentences about the physical attributes and the usage of randomly taken objects from the world around us. As kids participate in object talk with enthusiasm and excitement, their listening skills, comprehension and vocabulary are all developed.
