Dr. Harding’s Tips for playing & learning.
Dr. Harding believes the Teletubbies can help support your little ones in the three prime areas of the early year’s foundation stage. Take a look at her tips below to find out how:
Communication and Language
- Encourage your children to join in with the Teletubbies repetition. Repeating words such as “again, again” can help children understand how words are used.
- Why not ask your children to pretend to be like their favourite Teletubbies and ask them to name their favourite things? This will teach them to express themselves.
- Helping children become more active can be easy. A great way to encourage them to start moving their feet is to follow the Teletubbies as they start to dance, they can even practise each Teletubbies signature move. Who knows this may even get you up on your feet too!
- Noo-Noo loves to tidy up. You could try asking your children to tidy their toys away by providing several cardboard boxes for different categories. This is an ideal way to help improve their social development.
Social and Emotional Development
- Social and Emotional development are supported strongly by the Teletubbies show. For example the Teletubbies love each other very much and share big hugs. Why not ask your children to share big hugs with members of your family.
- The Teletubbies love to laugh out loud. You can encourage your children to do this with games such as peek-a-boo.
