This weekend we attempted a phonics version of 'The floor is lava' which the children loved playing in Nursery.
This is also good for Physical Development.
You will need:
- 5 cushions (Mia added blankets to represent the lava)
- A pen and some paper
To set up:
- Put the cushions on floor
- Write the letters you want your child to learn on five pieces of paper, (This can also be applied to numbers} This would be great in learning letters of their name,
- Pop each paper onto the cushion.
- Each player attempts to cross the room using the cushions,
- Say the the letters you want your child to land on
- Once your child can name and make the letter sound. Try and get them to collect the letters to make a word.
- Whilst they are crossing you could lie in wait and pretend to be a hungry crocodile or a lava monster waiting to catch their foot on a particular letter,
- Once your crossed you could set various traps.
- If your child knows th story of Three Billy Goats Gruff use the cushions to reanact the story.
For Mathematics today Make a number with your child's favourite snack.
Could you count out or add the amount in raisins or cerals to represent the number?Finally on your daily walk collect some natural items.....
