Listening and attention game: Sausages!
Choose one of your child's favourite story books and select a 'chosen word'that will be repeated throughout the story book. For example the main characters name. Explain to your child that when you read the story they have to listen to when the 'chosen word' is repeated and then they can say or sign "Sausages!" Once they get the hang of it you can choose other words and the children can suggest what silly word they can call out for the new 'chosen word'
The Long and the short of it.
Order House hold 'sets' of items, these could be food socks etc. Model the language of long and short and let your child puzzle it out and place them in order. You can draw around items in your busy bee books if they are not too big.
