We will start as we always do by recognising our own name.
Please write 5+ different name cards (including your child's name) for your child to recognise and select their own name from.
The quantity of name cards should vary depending on how easily your child is able to recognise their own name. This should be being increased gradually.
I want to give out lots of dojo's for this task so please let me know how you get on with this task.
Next I would like you to turn on your listening ears as we will be copying repeated rhythms.
I would like you to listen carefully whilst your grown up plays a rhythm so that you can copy afterwards. Make sure you are listening carefully. I would like you to start off nice and easy and gradually make it a little longer.
You might want to do this using body percussion such as claps, taps, stamps or clicks or you might want to do this using something from around your house such as wooden spoons, pans, etc.
Finally, I would like you to spend some time on the phonics game below before snack time. Enjoy!
