Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Making a book of special things

Catalogue pictures of toys or favourite food


Cut pictures from catalogues that you know interest the child, stick one picture onto a page and spend some time looking and talking about the picture e.g. say 'What's that?' Use the child's words to write a label under the picture.

Make up a small book of favourite things which can be shared with a teacher or a parent.

Can the child take this to an adult and show them with comments on the pictures?

Try not to worry about getting messy or the final results of this 'art work' not being perfect!

The object is to get the child to name the picture with one or two words.

Try to make the child feel proud of their work so that they are more likely to talk about it spontaneously - even if it is only using one word.

Follow the child interests to get an enthusiastic response!
