Summer 2 week 4
Rumble in the Jungle!
Listen to the Story!
Talk about the story- what is your favourite jungle animal? Talk about their features. How does the animal move? Where do they live? Are they awake at night or during the day?
Encourage your child to hear the rhyming words in the story.
Draw a picture of your favourite animal.
How many footprints?
Write numbers 1-10 on pieces of paper. Count to 10 with your child , holding up each number as you do so. Muddle them up then try and trick your child , showing them numbers out of sequence for them to label.
Select a number , identify it, and drawing some footprints to go with that number . Model writing the number to your child and ask them to copy it.
