School readers storytime:
There are also many other practical activities that can help your child.
Some suggestions are:
- Set up treasure hunts or challenges and encourage your child to read the clues to find the treasure.
- Play games such as charades and make sure you encourage your child to read the instructions.
- Play timed word games like Boggle. Set an egg timer to one or two minutes and tell your child a sound, e.g. short vowel o and ask them to think up as many words with that sound (e.g. top, job, coffee) before the timer goes off.
- Use puppets, dolls and construction toy characters to build a story setting.
- Write and read out a list of rhyming words that have the same sounds e.g. rain, brain, main and another word that is different, such as ‘the’. Ask which the odd one out is.
- Play ‘Simon says’ with slightly more complicated instructions than ‘Stand up/Sit down’. Try and jiggle on one leg, flap your arms and hop, rub your tummy and smile!
- Play yes/no games. Your child chooses an object, person or animal and answers yes/no to your questions until you guess what/who they are thinking of.
- Find songs and mnemonics to help your child remember the days of the week/months of the year/colours of the rainbow (e.g. Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain).
- Play a memory game’. Put some objects on a tray, talk about them with your child, then cover them up and see how many he or she can remember.
- Read your favourite books!
- Ask your child to write and then illustrate a favourite fairy tale.
