Laura Henry’s Early Years Conversation Cards
I have developed my range of Early Years Conversation Cards to enable children to listen, share and connect with their peers and adults and to support parents and carers to encourage open discussions with children
I currently have 3 sets of conversation cards in my range, please see the links below for further information.
- start meaningful conversations
- introduce new words and concepts
- help children to develop active listening skills
- assist children to think critically – which links to they key characteristics of effective teaching and learning
Children in particular can often worry about what the future holds in a home move, particularly if it involves a new school or moving away from family or friends. These cards will help you to stimulate open and frank conversations with your children about all sorts of subjects – from packing up and moving pets to making new friends and starting a new school.
These cards will give you the opportunity, at your leisure, to have open and frank conversations with your child about starting school.
They will also give you the opportunity to highlight issues and scenarios that you may not have thought of and help to frame discussions, linked to your child’s unique needs.
Another incentive, if you needed one, is that 10% of all sales will be donated to the Jermain Defoe Foundation, set up by the Sunderland FC striker to support homeless, vulnerable and abused young people in both his and Laura’s families’ home country of St Lucia.
