Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Mystery bag of objects

Fill a bag with everyday toys and objects from around the class e.g. car, brick, pen, cup

1. Offer the bag of objects to the child to choose an item.

2. As the child pulls out an object, model the phrase the child needs to use e.g. 'I have got the ...'.

3. You take out an object. Say 'I have got the ...'.

4. You want the child to copy your phrase and use the word 'I'. You may need to tell the child 'Copy my words'.

5. Keep doing this activity until the child can use the standard phrase 'I have got the...'. Reward the child for success with a smile or a sticker.

You could say to the child 'this is a copying game!'

Keep the pace up during this activity and keep the phrase you want the child to copy the same each time to make it easier for the child to remember and get it right and so get the reward.
