It is back to school and Term 1 which means it is a recap of the year before. Best time to revise all of those tricky concepts that may have been forgotten over the holidays.

Children learn best when they use concrete apparatus, as it involves most of the senses.

Learning doesn't have to be boring. Choose a theme and layout some fun activities that match that theme.

We focused on colours here and then during her activities I encouraged speaking about what she was doing and that way introduced new vocab. Look at this stick, it is facing down and this blue one is lying sideways.

The mixing colours was a fun activity and a very basic introduction to primary and secondary colours.

Patterns can be made with various different items that you have lying around the house.

Carter's favourite patterns to make are ones that he can eat afterwards.


Are you wanting to increase your child's reading fluency? The reading pyramid is a great way to help with reading speed and can help revise high frequency words.

Learning does not only have to be behind a desk.

Baking together is a fun way to learn how to measure, pour, estimate and following instructions so listening skills.

Find something simple to start with. My go to with my toddler is those muffin mixtures that just need milk, eggs and oil. Kids love helping in the kitchen and being apart of our lives. They can even help with washing the dishes afterwards.

This is not something you want to try when in a rush and you want to be prepared. So lay down an art throw and get everything ready for them. Then sit down on the floor and enjoy the bonding time, whilst incorporating some learning too.

Let's talk about rewards.

Every family has something that works for them, for us it is a star chart. When Carter earns 5 stickers he gets to choose a small reward. 5 stars equals a small treat that equals R50 or less, like an ice-cream.

He can also accumulate gold stars to get something bigger. He has been wanting a metal detector for ages now and my hubby bought one. Carter needed 10 stars to earn it.

Carter earns stars by accomplishing something that is difficult without having a meltdown and working through it. Now being ADHD it isn't the easiest thing for him. He is also a perfectionist, but he did it and earned that Metal detector.

The rewards need to be short term, otherwise they lose interest and feel defeated before beginning to attempt it.

What works for your family?

It is very important that children are able to identify the different sounds in words and be able to change a single sound to create a new word.

This can be done with bottle caps. Simply write down some consonants and vowels on the bottle caps and let your kids make some simple CVC words( consonant vowel consonant) like cat and then ask them if they can change it to hat or sat.

Handwriting is something that needs to be practiced daily in the Foundation Phase.

They still need guidance and daily revision on how to form those letters and numbers correctly. Does the stick come first or the ball. The way they form the letters will determine if they end up writing a b or a d for example.

Also knowing which lines to write on and which letters are chimney letters like your h, l, f,d,k,b and which are your underground letters/tail letters like your j, q, p,y.

Starting them off to form the letters using playdough, in the sand/flour, using chalk on the walls and floors, as well as getting them to trace over sand paper letters is a great way to prepare them for writing formally.

Take a look at my pictures to see other ways that we have learned to form our letters.

How much sensory play are your kid's exposed to?

There are many benefits of sensory play:
1)encourages learning through exploration
2)Encourages creativity
3) Works on Problem Solving
4) Language development
5) Fine tuning of those motor skills
