Christmas Listening skill - Feed me!

Christmas Listening skill - Feed me!

his activity will help teach children speaking and listening skills, so important for good social skills. There is a Santa face, a plate template and 48 cookies with a range of Christmas items and also some emotion faces. Cut out Santa’s mouth and stick the sheet to a box – I used an old Amazon packaging box but anything A4 sized will do. Cut out a selection of cookies and place them on the ‘Cookie plate’ This activity is fun for one to one working but two children could also use it together. You can start easy by saying ‘Feed Santa a yellow cookie’. ‘Feed Santa a pink cookie’. ‘Feed Santa a cookie with a present on it’, ‘Feed Santa a cookie with a bell on it’. Then move onto more accurate descriptions. ‘Feed Santa a yellow cookie with a Christmas tree on it’, ‘Feed Santa a pink cookie with a bow on it’. It could get even trickier with requests such as ‘Feed Santa a pink cookie with red lights on it’. There are also some ‘emotion cookies’ for work on emotions and listening skills. ‘Feed Santa a cookie with a happy face’, ‘Feed Santa a cookie with a worried face’.Children need to listen really well and follow the instructions.Children can also take turns to describe which cookie they want another child or you to feed to Santa.
