“Martha's Dog Party explores language through bizarre interaction with dogs. ”
Dress the dogs for the party for a bit of fun, explore descriptive language as you offer the dogs some food by finding the plates described - i.e. find the plate with the circles on it, find the rectangle etc. Martha Says is the final game - a Martha take on 'Simon Says' that explores running, sitting, walking and stopping and a number of synonyms for the same actions.
Parents and learners can discuss activities and characters in real world contexts, and review quiz achievement for progress.
Colour in some paper plates with different patterns, cut them into dofferent shapes and cut and stick different magazine pictures on them (activity 1!). When the paper plates activity is done use your child's favourite stuffed animals to play the game. "Teddy would like to use the red plate, can you find me the red plate?" Initially offer simple patterns / descriptions and make the choice from only three plates, as skills develop make more complicated plates that explore more complex vocabulary and increase the number of plates to be chosen from.
