Launching into Learning - session 8

Top tips for this session

During the Session:

  • Bring a teddy or soft toy to join in the ‘Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear’ song.
  • Count along with the story.

After the session:

  • Children learn through their senses so let them touch and hold items they want to count.
    Count anything, anywhere! Count the steps from the car to the door.
  • Count how many toys in the bed. Count the fingers on your hand. Start with 1 – 5 and as your child gets to know them add in more numbers

About Launching into Learning

We’re excited to welcome back indoor LiL sessions in schools and Child and Family Learning Centres in Term 2. These sessions will be run in a COVID-safe way.

LiL may still look a little different in Term 2, talk to your local school to see what is happening.

We’ll still be doing our LiL online sessions in Term 2. These sessions are a great opportunity to sing, move and listen to stories with your child. Each episode goes for approximately 20 minutes and will provide you with ideas, activities and songs that you can entertain your child with all week long.

Follow us as we visit different schools and CFLCs across the State for LiL online!
