Great Start

Learn

Great Start is a nifty little website from the Department of Education and Child Development. It has lots of different ideas for communicating with your kids, playing with your kids and even cooking with your kids! There’s lots of information, linked to skills your child is learning- if you are into that sort of thing! Most importantly, I think, is there are many things on the website that you probably already doing with your kids, but the website explains why they are important and helps introduce questioning techniques that will assist your child in becoming an active learner.

The website includes ideas about:

  • Celebrations
  • Food
  • Being active
  • Getting ready
  • Growing
  • Out and About
  • Play
  • Word Play
  • Working it Out

My two-year-old niece was really good at the Shadow Play activities, although her attention span was about 10 minutes not 45! We made shadows with hands and feet then played shadow chasey where we tried to stomp on each other’s shadow heads. Don’t worry, it didn’t hurt.
