  • Model appropriate interactions.

  • Provide opportunities for children to complete tasks together:

    • –  shared jobs, for example, tidying the writing corner;

    • –  labelling, for example, own/jointly made constructions, pictures, classroom signs;

    • –  puppet plays;

    • –  brainstorming and list making;

    • –  role play;

    • –  sorting activities – open (child determines criteria) or closed (teacher sets criteria), for example, magnetic letters, objects beginning with given sounds, words, syllables;

    • –  writing activities, for example, greetings cards, messages;

    • –  problem-solving tasks, for example, complete jigsaws and puzzles, using construction materials to build models.
