PLANNING and ORGANISATION

1) I will take TC into the garden and kick a ball around with her, if the weather is nice enough

2) I will then push some toys with her, still in the garden

3) Then we will sit down and do some drawing and colouring

4) Then we can go inside and I will ask TC to build a big tower of bricks for me

5) I can then ask TC to choose a book to read, and ask her about the pictures in the book

6) Then I will get photos of her family and ask TC who the people are in the pictures

For this I will need a ball, TC’S Barbie car, toy bricks, paper and pencils/crayons, TC’S favourite book, Princess stories and some photos of her family.
