We are learning traditional stories and rhymes. We read ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff: Ladybird First Favourite Tales’. You might like to go watch this video from ‘Toddler Learning Fun’ to go back over the story with your child. Unfortunately it is on You Tube which is blocked in school.
Traditional stories are useful when teaching children language. This is because the children find them interesting and the story line is repetitive. Some words and phrases are repeated throughout the story giving the children the opportunity to get them on their ear. Traditional stories enrich a child’s vocabulary in English and gives children exposure to a variety of grammar.
There are other stories on the ‘Toddler Learning Fun’ playlist that your child might enjoy.
Watching videos in English will be good for your child’s language development.
We used resources for this story from Bev Evan’s wonderful website Communication4All
