Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
At playtime puts on/off coat

Make a picture of child with coat on and coat off. Laminate if possible.

Show the child the relevant picture before/after play and help take coat on/off. As you do use the same phrase to describe your action e.g. 'Coat on' or 'Coat off'.

As child becomes used to this routine stand back a little and see if the child will do own coat?

Will child do own coat if you just ask without using the pictures and eventually will the child follow the routine appropriately with no support?

Be consistent with using the picture supports and using the same phrases to describe actions.

Allow the child time to make an attempt - even if the coat is wrong way round - if this happens - praise the child for trying e.g 'Good putting coat on - you want more help'

Tidy up box/bag

Toys to tidy
