Daily Kindy Plan
- Reading. Please read at least two stories a day with your child and focus on: WHO, who is in the story? What are the character’s names? WHERE, where is the story set? eg park, school beach. Encourage children to look for visual clues in the pictures of where it is set. WHEN, when is the story set? Look for visual clues. Is it day time of night time? Maybe Easter time or Christmas? WHAT, what is happening in the story? Get your child to retell the main events that happened.
- Sing and Dance. Spend 5-10 minutes each day singing Nursery Rhymes and doing action songs. Here are some suggestions for you, YouTube is also great for more ideas. Humpty Dumpty, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Mary had a Little Lamb, Hickory Dickory Dock, Incy Wincy Spider, Open Shut Them, If You’re Happy and You Know It, Where is Thumbkin
- Outside Play. 15-30 minutes for gross (large) motor play. This could include bike riding, ball games, climbing, balancing along a line, hoops, skipping ropes, trampoline jumping or any other items or activities you have at home. Included in the pack is 24 Fitness Exercise Cards, they include some great little exercises to include into your daily physical activities.
- Kindy Placemat. On your usual Kindy days, we encourage you to choose four activities from the Currambine Kind Placemat. Activities are colour coded, so choosing a mixture of colours is recommended.
