Today it is Funky Friday!
This week we have looked again at our topic of ‘Babies and Growth’. Your child has learnt to use their bodies in different ways. They can now stop and start when they listen. See if they can join in with this stop and start song.
Your child can also listen well to sounds and can sort out high and low sounds;
Can you go in to the den you made together yesterday? In the den or another quiet area in the house, make up a story with your child. It could be about anything at all.
Use your child’s toys to tell a story.
Or you could talk about the toys below;
Who is in the den? Are you bear and your child is baby bear? Are you the dragon and the friendly witch? Are you Elsa and Anna? Or Superman and Lois Lane?
Your child can bring in some of their favourite small toys and you can make a story using them; ‘I am using the magic cave water to make my dragon better.’
‘I am looking after the baby dragon in case the robot comes in to the cave..’
Bring about a story from whatever toy or character your child is interested in. The main thing is for your child to have fun pretending!
Challenge: Can your child say the first sound of the toys?
Robot – r-r-r-r-
Spaceship – s-s-s-s
Train – t-t-t-t
Then can your child draw their toys in their busy book. You could write the first sounds and your child can copy.
Make it easier: Say the names of the toys to your child then repeat the initial sounds to help them hear the first sounds. Then your child can draw their toy or toys. Help them to hold the pencil firmly.
How many red objects can you find 5? Or more?
Once objects have been found, count each red object touching each object as you say the number. Give one number name to each object.
Challenge: Write the numbers 1 – 10 down in your busy book. Encourage your child to write them independently or else copy them from the number cards.
Now listen to a story together about when you grow up!
We hope you enjoyed the story.
Enjoy the rest of the day!
