Helping to develop your child’s stories #3

9 August 2021

Storytelling Practice:

  • Use pictures or objects to put a story in the right order so it makes sense (e.g. put pictures of how to make a sandwich in the right order. “First we get the bread, then…”
    • Make it easier: Use only a few pictures or objects and go through them with your child, explaining the sequence. Give a choice of the last two pictures or objects for them to work out which is next.
    • Make it harder: Mix up all the pictures or objects and see if your child can put them in the right order then explain the sequence. Throughout the task, comment on what your child is doing and place special emphasis on words that are to do with ordering and organising such as ‘first’, ‘next’, and ‘last’.
