Today at Nursery we are reading the story Owl Babies follow the link below to listen to the story. You might like to have a look at real owls and see if you can find out what they eat and whe they wake up. Maybe you can find some animals that are awake at the same time as owls.
At home can you make a picture with some animals on and sort them into categories according to when they are awake.
Stories are very important in helping to develop your child’s speech, language and understanding.
Here are some development steps for you to use as a rough guide depending on your child's age in months:
16-26 months let your child copy your words from the story…. Owl, bird, twit a woooooo
22-36 months listens with interest to a story and joins in with the repeated words “I want my Mummy” Ask questions like “Where’s Mummy gone?” “Point to Percy?”
30-50 months Listens to stories with increasing attention and recall. Ask your child what might happen next or how are the owl babies feeling. Discuss what makes them sad or happy.
