In one of
my previous articles, I mentioned that a great way how to naturally
expose your child to a foreign language is to set up a playgroup. A simple
get-together with like-minded mums and their children where you can enjoy some time
together and let your children soak in some of the language through playing and
interacting with one another.
playgroup sessions consist of two parts: a free play when we let our children play and
explore on their own while we are chitchatting in English, and an organized
play. For each playgroup session we prepare some rhymes and songs with movement
and a story reading followed by crafts.
To get a
general idea how to organize a similar playgroup, read my article Jak si založit Playgroup where I focus on this topic.
Posts that will follow under this tab will give you some simple ideas for your reading and craft
sessions – things that we have done and that we and our children have had the
greatest fun with.
Biggest thanks goes to all the mums who have joined me in our playgroup and contributed greatly with their inspiring ideas!
