5 language activities for quiet toddlers.x

 Hello readers 

 I hope you are all well and safe. Today's blog will be a communication and language based blog. Some children have the capability of talking but in busy settings may be shy and not want to talk. With the school season approaching I will be providing you with speech and language activities that you can do with your child at home. 

1. Make a scrap book. Use old magazines, pictures from the internet anything you can get hold off. Make a scrapbook out of different photos such as things you can ride on , foods , shapes , colours,  utensils and animals. Sit down with your child and talk about the pictures , what you can see and whats happening in the pictures.

2. The "yes" or "no" game. Make up silly questions to ask your child such as "can a car fly" "do pigs have wings" "can you see air". Let your child ask you questions to engage their brain. Your child will be using critical thinking and vocabulary by doing this.

3. Make snack time a time for a conversation. If you were to be making your child drink you can say "want water...I have some water ...would you like some water?". It is important you add more words to your sentences to expand on the childs vocabulary. Eventually children will repeat the phrases you have said to them.

4. When talking to you.child throughout the day always give them a choice. Such as if your child is having snack you can ask them "do you want an apple or a banana?" "Would you like squash or water?". Here your child will be using words to say which one they want to have.

5. Use singing games. You can sing rhymes with your child where they will begin to hear repetition and new words. You can sing songs such as heads shoulders knees and toes and talk about each body part so your child knows what each part isn, where it is and how they are used. 

Children love to hear adults they trust having a conversation. The more language they hear the more words they will pick up on. 

Happy Talking

Food for thought.x

Hello readers 
This is not something I would usually do on my blog but I saw this and needed to share as too many of us in the world put ourselves down and regret things we should not. I really want to share this image with you all.
 We should not regret things we have or have not done, things we should have done and things we shouldn't have done. There is  no point giving ourselves a hard time for these things. We are strong. We are independent. We are good people. Never regret a moment of your lives. Live for today and never look back with regret. Focus on our futures and what we can do.

How to make space goggles with your child.x

Hello readers and Happy Sunday !
I hope this blog finds you well. All children love messy play and love to get creative expressing their own ideas through creativity. You can give your child any resources you can get hold of and they will turn it into something exciting and fun to them. Children will be using their imagination, using their own initiative to create objects for a purpose to them. When doing these sort of activities your child will be developing fine motor skills , developing their imagination (which is a sector to the EYFS) and having lots of fun building on their emotionl skills and resilience. All of these are skills which children will thrive through life with.
Here’s what you need to make ‘space goggles’

How do we make them?

Sunday baking with the kids.x

Hello readers ,
Happy Sunday!

Who doesn’t love to bake? Getting the kids to join in to help will limit the time kids spend on screen time and spend some family time instead. Children will love to help and join you in the kitchen you can encourage them to do this as much as you can. Children will be occupied and away from screens when cooking with an adult and cooking reduces stress levels . Cooking activities can improve fine motor skills as kids will carefully hold cooking equiment in their hands using grasps for control. Children can develop their muscles by mixing with spoons and when using icing , squeezing the icing through the icing bags. When baking children are seeing numbers for the ingredients and how much they weigh, for older children who are able to recognise numbers you can ask how many grams / ounces or whatever measurements you wish to use are needed for the receipt. You can encourage your child to explore textures and you can describe the difference between the dry and …
