Listening & Attention

Quality storytelling to engage children's interest

Providing activities with an end goal to sustain children's attention for longer eg, arts & crafts, construction, cooking, simple board games

Using rhythm and rhyme


Giving simple instructions such as putting toys away or helping to set the table

Talking about activities as you're doing them and explaining how and why you're doing things

Explaining what's going to happen next and later

Explaining rules and boundaries



Using questions and conversation

Modelling correct pronounciation by repeating after child, showing that what they've said is understood

Using sounds in play

Learning new words and their meaning
