"Little Red Riding Hood"
Enjoy reading the story together, ask your child questions about the story to check their understanding.
Can they sequence events of the story?.
Where was the story set?,
Who were the good/bad characters? Use words to describe the characters, can your child guess who you are describing?
Make puppets of the different characters and ask them to perform the story using their puppets. Can they change their voice to match the different characters?
Have fun and please send me videos of any budding future actors/actresses!
I will add links to a range of resources and worksheets but please only use as appropriate.
