Activity 1: Listen to the story The Ugly Duckling
Literacy, Communication and Language
After you have listened to the story can you answer these questions?
Who was in the story?
What happened in the story?
Why was the duckling sad?
What could you do to cheer up the ducking?
Where did the Ugly Duckling go?
If your child shrugs or says “I don’t know” when you ask them the 'why' questions you could try answering these yourself first. Even if your child copies your answers you are still providing them with a great language model and extending their vocabulary.

Mathematics, Communication and Language, Expressive Arts and Design
Can you sing the song together? See if you can hear the rhyming words ‘day’ and ‘away’!
