100 ways to engage your child

Learn new ways to learn and play with your children



Fun with Games, Fun with Role Play and Fun Outdoors

 

Do you have difficulty finding ways to engage your child in learning activities? Well help is at hand, and it’s not another expensive toy that either gets broken or forgotten about within a week. The Basic Skills Agency has published Fun with Role Play, Fun with Games and Fun Outdoors, the first three booklets available from a series of six booklets aimed at providing accessible learning techniques for children aged between 3and 5 years. The booklets make use of everyday objects and activities that are based on speaking and listening to improve your child’s learning.

 

Fun with Role Play gives you different ideas for role play with your child such as The baby clinic or Birthday party. Something as simple as Dressing up can enable your child to sort out ideas, explain feelings or learn that numbers are used in many ways. Fun with Games encourages you use old newspapers, greetings cards and cereal packets to make word cards, action cards  and playing cards all focused on helping the your child to hear the sound of the first letters of words and tell the difference between sounds that are alike. The Fun Outdoors booklet provides great ways to get you child interested in the outdoors through scavenger hunts, asking your child to read your list out to you whilst shopping or simply asking them to spot numbers on cars or doors.  If you’ve ever had to take your child on a journey and heard the word’s ‘are we there yet?’ then you’ll find the ‘games for journeys’ really useful, it gives you ideas for ways to keep your child happy, and to learn at the same time.

 

Each booklet is easy to follow and explains how each activity is helping you child learn. They do require your time and interaction to get the most out of the activities and although many of the ideas are easy use and adapt to your own surroundings, some of the games may not be suitable for younger children. The books are a great way of improving your child’s learning with objects that surround them on a day to day basis. They have ideas on role play, games they can make themselves and fun outdoors all with the aim of getting your child thinking about language and numbers.
