Being National Winnie the Pooh day tomorrow, it felt right to do this weeks blog on Winnie the Pooh.
Definitely a loveable bear who’s friends are in many hearts, but this blog is More to Books so here are some books you can enjoy with your little ones that are a little bit different to the usual stories.
Touch and feel
For our youngest readers, this gorgeous book is a little like the “That’s not my…” series. Not only is it interactive, as your children start to talk it can encourage description, compare how things feel with their teddies/clothes/cushions etc.
As our readers start to learn the time, this is a great book for supporting children with the hour hand and the minute hand. Why not talk about different times that are important in your day to day routine, set the time on the clock and take a picture, print them to display them somewhere you can see to help your child recognise what the clock looks like at those times. The children could label them with “wake up”, “breakfast” etc
This book has ideas to do outside the house, let your child choose something from the contents and find the page. It says for before you are 5 and 3/4 but I’m sure older siblings would love to join in.
And for days when you need to stay in the house, check out this. Why not take pictures of the things you do from either books (with or without teddies from Winnie the Pooh), stick them in a notebooks. For our younger learners, ask them to describe their day and scribe for them.
Depending on their ability, encourage them to label the photograph, write a caption or if they can, a sentence or paragraph.
These activities can be done with siblings and differentiate accordingly.
This is my Nanny Baby’s new toy, B7 months.
