Storytelling - parents and young children.
|'Here comes the dog. Woof. Woof. Nice doggy.'
'Here comes the cow. Moo. Moo. Nice cow.'
|This can become more of a story by adding something like:
|'The dog chases the cow. Woof, woof, woof, woof!'
Make this fun by having the toy cow run away from the dog and hide behind the child or the pillow or the parent.
By making sure this is fun and playful it can be done again and again.
It can become more of a story by adding more language and more story structure.
|'Once upon a time there was a nice, little dog. 'Woof, woof, woof.'
Along came a cow.
'Hullo Mrs Cow.'
'Moo. Moo. Moo. Hullo Mr Farmer. Hullo little girl.
'Please don't eat our strawberries Mrs Cow,' said the little girl.
'Noooooooooo,' said the cow.
But do you know what, when Mr Farmer and little girl weren't looking (cover eyes with hand), Mrs Cow began to eat the strawberries.
'Oh no! Naughtly cow. Shoo cow shoo,' said the little girl.
'Dog! Chase that cow,' said Mr Farmer.
'Woof, woof, woof.'
And the nice, little dog chased Mrs Cow all the way back to the farm.
