It's Friday, the most wonderful day of the week! The weekend is here, but before then take a look at todays fun activities.
Dig out those picture snap cards and lay them out onto the table. You will just need a range of two matching pictures. It doesn't matter if they are from different packs as long as the picture is the same e.g. dogs, cats, house. You will need to tell your child that we are going to be detectives and find things that are the same.
Game 2. This is a game of memory. Again limit the number of cards you use. Place the cards face down. You choose a card then they can choose a card. 'Is it the same?' This first part is modelling what you are expecting. When they understand the rules of the game you can play choosing two cards. 'Are they the same?'. If not they will need to remember where it is.
Game 3. Now you can play this game using letters. You can either use magnetic letters, letter cards or tiles.
Game 4. As above but write simple CVC or high frequency words onto a card or paper.
How many objects around the room can you find made from metal, wood, plastic, paper? Todays challenge... Can you sort them into groups? To extend this task ask 'What is the same about the objects?' e.g. all wooden things will be hard, things that are made of paper you can change it's shape by scrunching or folding, metal things might be shiny etc. I've added an investigation worksheet if you would like to try it. Also a materials song just for fun.
Game 1: Below I've added a lovely counting game produced for little ones from the BBC. It includes songs and games.
