Hello Everyone!

Todays activity is "tell me a story from your head." This is a great game for Speech and Language development.

You will need:

  • Something to write on 
  • Your imagination

To play:

  • Ask your child if they would like to hear a story. As you tell your story stop when you get a get to a part with a Constonant-Vowel-Constonant (CVC) word for example Box (or a simple word) and write the word instead of saying it. To mix it up, let your child choose parts of the story too.
  • Here are some examples:

 You Say "One morning, I woke up and got some cereal from a ......." then write Box 

You Say "Then I put my trousers and my pink ...." then write Top

You Say "Then I went to the ......" then write a word of your child's choice and continue the story.

You Say "with my lovely fluffy ...." then write cat /dog /rat

You say "suddendly I saw ...." let your child choose what you saw

You say "the .......said ......."

You say "which made the fluffy ......... terrified and run away."

Remember to write The End.
