Each week I will add activities that you can do with your child. Please do only as much or as little as you would like to and have fun together! Some activities will be repeated - practise makes perfect! Scroll down for some learning ideas for each day

Here's a fun way to learn the alphabet, the letter sounds and learn how to sign the letters too!

These are the red words and are the next words we learn. Please help your child learn these words once they have learnt all the pink words.

Here are some ways to help you teach your children these simple words.

  1. Choose THREE words to learn at a time.

  2. Read the words together.

  3. Write the words with your child, saying each letter as you write it.

  4. Write the words on scrap paper. Cut out the letters and assist your child to put the word back together.

  5. Use magnetic letters to make the words IF you have some.

  6. Write the words outside on the concrete using chalk. Use different colours each time you write the word.

  7. Find the word in stories you read together. 

  8. Play the Memory game using the words. Write the words on scrap paper - make sure you have two copies of each word. Turn them face down and take turns to find pairs of the same word. Say the word aloud when a pair is found.

  9. Use the same words on scrap paper as flashcards.

  10. Put one or two words into a sentence. Eg: I am looking for my Mum.
