Good morning everyone and welcome to 'Wiggle Wednesday'.
The rain and storm last night was amazing so let's start today with some songs and rhymes about the rain. You could even have a wiggle and a dance.
Phonics : Let's play the game, 'Fred says....'.
Fred (adult) says: "put your hands on your h-e-d". Children copy the sounds (h-e-d) and say the word (head). Then do the action.
Give your child a little time to think but if they are unsure, repeat and give support to blend to help build confidence.
Repeat with: l-e-g, b-a-k, t-u-m, f-u-t, n-ee, h-a-n-d
This is called 'Fred Talk / Say the word'.
Count the weather symbols below.
How many suns/ raindrops/ clouds/ snowflakes can you count?
Ask your child to tell you the total.
Sometimes children will count, "1, 2, 3" but don't make the connection that this means there are 3 in total.
Challenge- Ask children to count 2 groups altogether (simple addition)
Storytime : Choose a story from earlier this week: 'Room on the Broom' or 'Amazing Aeroplanes'.
Repetition is good for children to reinforce knowledge and understanding.
