Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Sharing big book at carpet time

1. Define child's sitting space with carpet tile or tape. Always use the same space for big book time. (This might not be necessary for all children).

2. Start with short periods of shared sitting and listening to a story and build up to longer times. Using an egg timer may help to establish the idea of good sitting initially. When good sitting is established the timer can be removed.

3. If asking a question about the shared book to a group always use the child's name to alert him/her to a question - even a question addressed to the whole class.

4. Start by asking questions you know the child can answer.

5. If necessary focus the child's attention by taking his/her hand and pointing to/touching the relevant part of the book

6. Allow the child a chance to pre-read the big book so that events are already familiar.

Be clear about expectations but keep them reasonable

You could use a visual timetable to indicate that it is big book time or that the big book time is finished.
