THE ALPHABET BEARS
Can you say the alphabet and put all the bears in the right order? Can you say the letter name and then say the sound that letter makes?
The Alphabet Bears love to have adventures on Star Bear Island. Can you think of your own adventures for them?
It is a great way to encourage your children to use their imagination and increase their language skills and vocabulary. You can ask questions or simply let your child play alone with their new friends. You will be amazed to hear their stories and watch their confidence grow as they speak through the Alphabet Bears or Number Rascals. There is no limit to the learning opportunities you can provide for your child. The only limit is your imagination.
THE NUMBER RASCALS
As well as teaching number ordering, you can also talk about bigger and smaller numbers and pairs -matching the Number Rascal with their treehouse.
Oh dear! Number 2 looks very sad. I wonder why that is? What makes you sad? How do you feel when you are sad?
You can ask questions relating to the other emotions expressed by the Number Rascals.
Children often find it difficult to express their feelings and it is a helpful exercise to encourage them to open up and to discuss how they may feel in different situations. It also helps them to understand and appreciate how other children may feel as a result of their words or actions and how to behave in different situations.
