Play ‘guess what happens next’ when reading stories together. Kids have a great imagination, and it’s amazing what they can think up!
Ask them to write a story about the insect they saw. What’s their name? How big is their family? Where are they going? Do they have any superpowers?
Try taking it in turns to say alternate numbers to 30, while rolling or throwing a ball back and forth. Then, if you’re up for a challenge, try it backwards and in 2s. Start at different numbers, or if you don’t have a ball handy pat your tummy or clap your hands while you count.
