Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Small world people

Miniature figures

List of target action words e.g. run, jump, sit, sleep, stand, walk

1. Model making a figure run. Say 'Look. The boy's running!' , 'Look. Daddy's jumping!' etc.

2. Give the child the figures. Can he/she make the figures do the actions?

3. Help him/her label the actions and form sentences by saying 'Daddy's jumping/ sleeping/ running' etc.

4. Ask the child 'What's daddy doing?' You want the answer 'Daddy's running' or 'Dad run' etc. If the child does not provide this response model the response for them.

Use lots of repetition.

This can be a fun activity.

Children work well with small figures.

If the child makes a sentence and puts the words in the wrong order try to model the correct sentence in a conversational way rather than correcting them (e.g. if they say, 'Jumping he is' you say 'He's jumping').

The child may need to hear correct versions of the sentences many times before they are able to use them themselves.
