A sturdy basket ideal for storing activities, especially taller items. 240mm diameter x 100mm approx height, base 160mm diameter approx Why not create a smaller treasure basket for heuristic play by adding a selection of items from those listed below - you can find a selection in the related items below: Egg Cup Wooden sppon Woollen pompoms Range of boxes that will slot inside each other Sponge Tubes which will slide inside each other (inside of foil tubes, kitchen rolls, cling films etc) Strips of materials with different textures Items with slots or holes (spatulas, rings) Jar tops Shells Corks Hair rollers of different sizes Chains of various sizes and shapes Variety of tins (with safe tops) such as golden syrup tins, biscuit tins The items should be selected for their sensory properties, so natural materials are preferable. Smooth plastic, which gives very little sensory feedback, should be avoided. A word on health and safety Obviously as a practitioner you are not going to place your children in harm's way. Some of these objects may be considered to be potentially dangerous, particularly for babies who are still putting things in their mouths. You know your children and what you would be happy for them to experience. You know which ones will always chew first, ask questions later, or see any object as a weapon! This is entirely at your discretion. Items should be cleaned regularly and thrown away if broken or considered dangerous.
Pack of 5 Phonic Readers Set 1 - Early Readers.
Allowing a child to gain confidence at their own pace when starting to read is key to their success. Many reading schemes aimed at primary school children take things too fast for many younger children.
To address this Amazing Child Montessori have written and published a two stage reading programme to give the child high success rates and boost reading confidence.
This first set of five books (Bad Fox, Hot Dog, Dad's Cat, Pig, Em's Egg) uses simple phonic words consisting of consonant - vowel - consonant and minimal sight words: the, and, is and has. The text is very simple, with no punctuation and relates clearly to the witty illustrations.
The second set of five books use the same stories as set one but rewritten with more vocabulary and simple sentence punctuation. This plot repetition is a useful progression giving the child confidence to tackle the longer sentences.
The introduction page is for the adult to discuss with the child. It prepares the child for the sounds and sight words that will be encountered in the book. Sight words are only listed if they are not phonetic. The review page is similarly designed for discussion: it lists all the words encountered in the story, and has some sample questions to initiate a conversation. To further reinforce the language, children are encouraged to choose an illustration and write about it. They can use the word list from this page to help them. The children's reading text in the books is black on pale cream to avoid glare. Set 2 is also available to add more vocabulary and sentence punctuation to these stories. The child: practises reading the sounds, reads the sight words for the story, reads the story, practises reading the word lists, re-reads the story and answers questions about it.
The wooden cut-out numerals 1-10 and 55 red wooden counters are stored in a wooden box with two compartments and a lid. The numbers 1-10 are laid out in the correct order and the counters counted out and placed in pairs beneath. The child associates the correct number of counters with the numerals. The paired pattern in which the counters are laid out introduces the concept of odd and even and gives a visual memory image of the relative sizes of the numbers. Early Learning Goals: Count reliably up to 10 everyday objects. Recognise numerals 1 to 9.
Dimensions: Numeral height: 40mm, counter diameter: 20mm
