The Ministry of Education has a website that is constantly growing to support home learning.

Making Literacy fun: 

It is important that you try and read to or tell your children stories every night so that they are picking up new vocabulary and listening to the flow of a story. 

  • Talk about pictures in books, magazines, newspapers, photos from a photo album.

  • Sing waiata and songs. Sing nursery rhymes together and make up rhymes.

  • Be a role model. Let your child see you enjoying reading and talking about what you are enjoying.

  • Play word games like “ I spy” and ‘Simon says…” 

  • Write captions using the sentences below or create new sentences from the word cards in their book bags. 

  • Get your child to draw a picture to go with their story and read it to every family member. 

  • Involve your child in the daily chores .Talk to them about what you are doing (will help to build vocabulary). 

  • Helping in the kitchen, name the kitchen utensils and talk about it’s uses. 

  • Heihei Kitchen Science: https://www.heihei.nz/config/browse/screen/video-content/collection/details?cid=5784

  • Keep a daily diary. Write stories, write about what you’re up to at home, write about anything you like!
