This section provides strategies and techniques, including instructional videos on how to use I’m a Little Teapot to develop listening and language skills. This is achieved through interactive play, craft, and ideas on how to sing the song differently. These ideas are grouped together depending on your child’s language level:
- Emerging language
- Putting words together
- Putting sentences together
There is a fully animated game with three levels. Each level targets different levels of listening and language skills. With help from mum or dad, your child can choose to play a level that either consolidates or extends their current listening and language abilities. The game is:
- Set the table
Help Mrs Teapot set the table for three tea party guests. Choose different coloured and patterned cups and saucers to set the table and pour the tea. The game introduces different colours (blue, red, yellow, green, pink, orange, brown, black, grey, purple) and shapes (circles, triangles, stars, hearts, stripes).
Each of the levels builds upon your child’s auditory memory. – Level 1: 1 word descriptor, e.g. choose the blue saucer – Level 2: 2 word descriptors, e.g. choose the blue saucer with stars – Level 3: 3 word descriptors, e.g. choose the blue saucer with red stars
