I hope you all enjoyed yesterdays story 'The Journey Home from Grandpa's' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKcrsv_t8Ko. I would like you to play the story again. Watch carefully as below are some games/activities that accompany the story. Remember these games/activities are progressive, please choose the games that you feel your children can access.
Game 1: Small world play: Have you got any toy cars and vehicles? A road mat? Let your child explore and play. Be there to extend their play by naming the vehicles and by making different vehicles sounds. If the vehicle becomes in the air, model it flying etc.
Game 2: The family go on a journey, but how do they get there and what vehicles do they see along the way? Re-watch the story and parents, pause the clip when a new vehicle comes onto the screen. Can your child name it?
Game 3: Can your child sequence the order of vehicles using positional and mathematical language e.g. first, next, second, last etc. If you have the same vehicles in your toy box, use these to represent the order.
Game 4: Can your child recognise the colour words and match to toys/objects they can find in the house?
Game 5: Can your child identify the doing word(verb) Can they re-enact the actions using their toys?
Game 6: Can your child identify the descriptions of the 'journey' e.g. 'bumpy, fast, sticky'etc. Can your child generate their own words to describe? e.g shiny yellow sand.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
