It is lovely when you see children spontaneously reach for a book. Today brock went inside and got himself a book (It was one of our new German ones!) It wasn’t lnog before other children started to copy him. They all piled in the blue disk and enjoyed some quiet time together.
Apart from sharing our love of books with the children we also play games that help the children develop Pre Reading Skills.
This week we have done some sorting and matching with plastic animals. This helps us to develop visual discrimination skills. The children were also developing their language skills asking “Can you see a green sheep?’ etc And learning to copy a pattern.
We have also been working on sequencing two and three cards. Then the children are encouraged to tel me a story about the cards.
