Fun tips and ideas to try at home

Knock, knock

Tell each other 'Knock Knock' jokes. Being playful with words is a fun way to learn about language and Ruby will love laughing with you!

Words and their parts

Build phonological awareness by emphasising different sounds. You might emphasise the 'b' in ball or break a word into syllables like 'din-o-saur'.

Model active listening

You can encourage Bryn to be a good listener by modelling listening behaviour. Make eye contact and let Bryn finish talking before you respond.
