Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Which day?

Card with 3 boxes, for yesterday, today and tomorrow

A jumping frog (or any other toy animal that jumps!)

1. Talk about each day, one at a time. Have the child draw or write key things they have done or that they will do in each box.

2. When you have finished, explain that there is going to be a quiz. Describe an activity and the child must say if they did it yesterday, today or if they will do it tomorrow.

3. Have them jump the frog onto the right day.

This works best when there are key things which are different about each day!

Walter the Worm

Set of three toy animals - a small one, a medium sized one, and a large one - all the same colour - for example three plastic worms

Large 'thought clouds ' on A3 or A4 paper:

Sticky tape

Pens

* It is better to do this over at least two sessions.

If the child is finding it easy to think about this, you could repeat the activity but have the child think about when he was a baby, and then about when he is grown up.

This activity is also suitable for working with children at lower levels: for example to develop communication about past present and future experiences (English Speaking P7), and sequence pictures of daily events (Maths Shape Space and Measures P8).

 

An Important Message

It costs £300 per week to keep the Commtap website maintained and running. Only a very small number of its 4000 regular visitors donate anything towards the costs of its running.

This site helps parents, teachers, care-workers, speech and language therapists and many others to make their support for those with communication difficulties as effective as possible.

Every contribution from you - no matter how big or small - goes to ensure that the Commtap site continues to provide this valuable service.

You can support Commtap from as little as £1 - and it only takes a moment!
