Skreineite

The exhibition of Skreineite

At the end of April, 2017 the Latvian Language Agency published a complete set for teaching the Latgalian language – a primer, a workbook for writing and reference material on the primer for teachers. In the compilation of the Latgalian primer “Skreineite” (The Little Chest) the new “Rules of the Latgalian Orthography”, approved in 2007, have been taken into account.

The new primer is a book of a classical type of the primary education intended for teaching to read in Latgalian. It can be used for home-teaching, in kindergartens or at primary schools.

The sound method has been recognised the most appropriate method for teaching to read in the Baltic languages; it has several variants. The primer “Skreineite” has been compiled according to the analytically synthetic method.
