Make Believe!

Pretend play has a vital role in a child's developing mind.
Encourage your child to use his or her imagination, sail the seven seas, create a theme and live the story.

1.Book & Music: Rupert the Wrong Word Pirate

   Language: Practice making your own rhymes, play a game when in the car or waiting.
   Music: Listen and move to the same theme, it is easier for them to remember.

2. Math: Counting 1:1 correspondence
Count slowly and making sure that you count one item at a time.
Start with left to right to prepare the child for reading sequence.
I would suggest get real coins not a digital one.

3. Listening and Imitating
Since the book is about pirates, do some pirate languages for the child to say after you.
Ahoy there, Matey!

4. Science: Animal to See at the Sea
Show pictures and toy of sharks and whales, better yet, visit an oceanarium or go penguin watching.

5. Pretend Play
From Pirates to Princess, here is a craft activity. We made our own crown, pretend play has never been so sparkly!

See you in the land of make believe! :)
