Singing and drama games are a great way of developing attention and listening skills. Through joining in with familiar songs and actions, your child can learn to anticipate, wait, take turns, listen for familiar words and phrases and follow a sequence of actions.
Spend time choosing and singing your favourite action songs such as ‘Happy and you know it’ and ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’, or play a game of ‘Follow the Leader’ or ‘Simon Says’.
The following video shows you how you can take part in some of our favourite drama games at home. Sing the songs using the props and allow your child time to respond and join in with the actions at the correct points.
