Learning activity for parents: This is what we did

leave a comment »

When your child has just finished playing, or just come back from the playground, cinema or anywhere else, you could take the opportunity to practise reading and writing.

Sit down with your child, and ask them to write one or two sentences in English about what they have just done. For example, they could write ‘The dolls all wore pretty clothes at the party’ or ‘My football went over the fence’. Your child may also like to draw a picture to go with their writing, and younger children can just write words or phrases if whole sentences are too difficult.  Help your child spell the words they need. You can write a sentence too, then when you have finished you can swap paper and read each other’s. Or when a family member, friend or relative comes to your home, your child can show them their writing and talk about what they have been doing.
