Print off a blank activity template, so that you can laminate or cover it in clear sticky back plastic or place it in a clear plastic wallet. Then make or print off the activity library and Velcro or blu-tac on each week. Your child can then place a token (stickers, made up badges on the computer, ticks or stamp pen marks) next to the activity as it is done.
Keep a record of the activities your child has been doing. You could have a notebook and write in the weeks activities and how your child managed them or write them on the activity record sheet itself and print off a new sheet for the next week.
Make your own activity library and record sheets as new ideas and games appear.
Stick up somewhere your child can access.
Any activities not completed from the week are moved into the next week (encourage your child to do these first) .
Encouragement, praise and patience are key elements in supporting and developing your child’s confidence and self-esteem, encouraging them to have a go.
The sheets will help you to remember which activities you have used and ensure you cover a broad range over time. A record of activities would be useful if you feel that your child may require additional support at school. The school may be able to implement some of the activities into your child’s school day, so that they are being supported at home and school.
