Activity 1: My Communication
Smash the ice cubes and match the symbols inside to symbols, farm animal toys and pictures in books. Can you make the sound they make?
Activity 2- My communication
See activity plan and resources below -
Activity 3 - My thinking
Starter: Play finger aerobics. Shuffle a pack of 1-10 cards. Show a card, but don’t read it. Child quickly claps the amount of the number on the card
Main: Place 5 soft toys/small world characters in a line. These toys have had a race. This toy came first. Ask your child to put the correct ordinal number symbol by this toy. Ask - Which toy came 3rd? Where did ‘rabbit’ come?
Then move the toys as if after another race and rpt
Try in different ways-
Put the ordinal numbers symbols in order on the table and ask your child to put a certain toys in a certain place in the line. E.g. put the rabbit in 4th place, put the teddy in 1st place.
Too easy - try using objects that look the same but are different sizes/colours e.g. put the big, blue bear in 2nd place or the green bear etc.
Too hard: try with 3 toys
