Before the start of any theme, dedicating time to engage in some tuning-in activities can bring great benefit to both you and your child especially in later activities in this theme. Tune-in activities allow you to assess your child’s thoughts, feelings and understanding he/she has of the current theme. At the same time, activities of this type can help your child personally connect to the theme and hence providing him/her with a base for imitating, representing, playing and replaying newly acquired knowledge.
The suggested tune-in activity for this theme is to read the book “Mighty, Mighty Construction Site” by Sherri Dusker Rinker. Click here for a read-aloud version of this book.
To complement this book-reading activity, here are two activities that you can complete together with your child. The third downloadable is a construction vehicles flashcard set.
- Toys/Materials used in the above activities are interchangeable with others that you may have at home
