Ring ring – Who shall I call?
A great way to get children to talk is by giving them a phone. This resource goes brilliantly with a phone – so as well as getting children to talk, this one encourages them to recognise numbers and write messages.
The resource consists of three posters, with different characters and their numbers, along with a message template.
I suggest that when using this in continuous provision you place a play phone or a phone that no longer works to encourage them to be creative with their messages. Maybe get another child to pretend to phone them and leave a message.
