Young children love to be active and creative when learning. Developing children’s listening skills coupled with following directions needs to be woven into the classroom program. The children have completed a ‘follow me’ picture of a story character. The teacher’s role is to use directional language and model for the children e.g. follow me – put a straight line in the middle of your page. Language: curved, straight, middle, above, below, in front, behind, to the side, right, left etc.
The pictures below are family portraits using white ink pens on black card. These pictures are laminated and can be used as a placemat when taken home.
