What to do with this activity?
Nowadays we have to stay local, but there's still a big world out there that we can get to know. With online resources we can do a bit of exploring virtually and learn about different countries all over the world.
Global Trek from Scholastic lets you choose your destination. Ask your child what country they want to visit today, and encourage them to write a travel journal as suggested.
Do a bit more exploring on the internet to find out more about your destination. Find more photos and get as much information as you can.
Why am I doing this?
Children gain confidence in speaking through demonstrating their knowledge to others. Chatting and listening to your child will help build their communication skills. Talking about words and their meaning in everyday life will also help build your child’s vocabulary – and your own!
How can I do more?
Funny stories are interesting and a good excuse to get your child talking. At mealtimes, each family member could tell something interesting or something funny that happened during the day. Watching TV together can also provide a good opportunity for chat and to discuss what you are watching. Check if your child understands different things they hear and encourage your child to teach you new words and things they have learnt.
