Teacher's Top Tips

Tip One:
Read every day, your stage book or a book from home. Talk about what you've read, look at the pictures, predict what might happen and think about how the characters in the story feel.

Tip Two: 
Talk every day about what you did at school and what was your favourite part of the day.

Tip Three: 
Follow instructions well and listen to the adult taking care of you - they want you to be happy and safe!
