Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Photos from home or from school life

1. Look at the picture. Talk about what is happening. Ask some easy to answer questions.

2. Stick the picture in a book to take home and say 'Tell me what to write and you can show Mum'.

You are aiming for more than a one-word answer. Prompt the child to say more by modelling a 2 or 3 word phrase and then asking the question again.

Wait and give the child time to respond.

Praise all efforts.

Pictures cut from a catalogue or paper
Child's own drawings
