Tickton Pre-school and Play Pals.

 

 

Planned Activity: Aspect 1: Environmental Sounds.

Sound Lotto:

Positive Relationships:

Support children to listen to the sound played from the ‘sound lotto CD or practitioner/parent led lotto game.

 This can be an adult led small group activity or can be provided within the setting as a freely chosen activity.

Enabling Environments:

Provide the resources to enable children to access this activity, including a quite listening space, sound lotto CD and game cards, plastic counters to ‘check off’ sounds.

Main Purpose:

Further development of vocabulary and children’s identification and recollection of the difference between sounds.

 

Planned Activity: Aspect 2 / Instrumental Sounds.

Sock sounds!: 

6/10 socks (or small bags) filled with different sound making objects. Use communication skills to express ideas and thoughts about the sounds created.

Positive Relationships:

Help children to discuss the sounds that they can hear – use clear describing words to support children’s language and communication development

Enabling Environments:

Provide a quite space for a small group of children to participate in this activity.

Main Purpose:

To experience and develop awareness of sounds made.

 

Planned Activity: Aspect 3 / Body Percussion.

Two little dickey birds sitting on a wall:

(Singing songs and action rhymes is a vital part of Phase one activities

  • Do the rhyme quietly (Whisper) or Loudly. (See core songs list).

Positive Relationships:

Singing songs and action rhymes is a vital part of Phase one activities and must be done on a regular basis with children.   Encourage the children to be attentive and to know when to add sounds, when to move and when to be still.

Enabling Environments:

Provide a quite space for a small group of children to participate in this activity.

Use group times each day as an opportunity to access rhymes and songs. 

Main Purpose:

To distinguish between sounds and to remember patterns of sound.

 

Planned Activity: Aspect 4 /Rhythm and Rhyme

Rhyming Soup:

‘I’m making lots of silly soup, I’m making soup that’s silly, I’m going to cook it in the fridge to make it nice and chilly’

In goes a box... a fox...some socks...

Positive Relationships:

To explain that the silly soup is full of rhyming objects and discuss how together we can ....sing the silly soup song....

Enabling Environments:

Collect objects that rhyme. Create a quite space for a small group of children to access the activity. A large bowl and wooden spoon for mixing the soup is required.

Main Purpose:

To increase awareness of words that rhyme and to develop knowledge about rhyme.

 

Planned Activity: Aspect 5 / Alliteration.

‘Digging for treasure’:

Finding objects in the water/sand/seed tray with the same initial letter sound.

Positive Relationships:

Support children to make voice sounds by modelling the sounds and mouth movements, support children with their articulation.

Enabling Environments:
