Chatterboxes Week 2 Wednesday
Make a bear mask from a paper plate.
Use the things your child collected on your bear hunt and ask them to retell the story to others.
Paint a picture of a bear with your child. Talk about the colours and ask them what extra details they could add to their painting such as the sun or a tree. Following this, Talk to your child about the picture they create and ask them to tell you what everything is.
Model past tense verbs/action words to your child, for example “Look what you’ve painted” or “You pressed your finger onto the paper”.
