Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Puppet Story

- Puppet

- Story book

- Stickers

  1. Choose a puppet and a story book. Explain to your child that the puppet likes to read stories but sometimes he gets to words wrong. You need the child to listen and shout out if any words are incorrect and that they will win a sticker for this.
  2. Read the story, make errors in some of the words, e.g. you could say 'tat' instead of 'cat', call a 'tree' a 'cloud' etc.
  3. If you child picks up on the error, reward them with a sticker. If theyare finding it tricky to pick up on the errors, talk it through together, e.g. 'the puppet said 'moon' but I can see a picture of a 'sun' - I think the puppet said the wrong word!
