Time Grade R

Message 7

To get ready for TIME, remember to find a quiet comfortable space. Look through the activities before you set aside 20 minutes to work with your child. This is a relaxed learning time where you build your child’s confidence by using comments like “I like your thinking” and “Keep trying you will get it’’.

Writing letters and numbers is something that needs lots of practice. It is fun and very beneficial to write numbers and letters with different tools, not just pencil and paper.

You could use a stick in the sand or your finger in a tray of rice or sugar. You could use chalk on a wall or pavement. Play dough is quick and easy to make and can be used as a fun alternative, multisensory way of practicing letters and numbers. The recipe for an easy play dough is given on the poster you received in your term 1 pack.
