During our Jigsaw lessons the children have been discussing their dreams and goals. Choose one of the games below to play with your family and discuss the goal or end outcome before starting the game. At the end of the game discuss if you reached your goal.
- Game 1 - See if you can give clear instructions on how to make a jam sandwich. If an adult can do this bit to model it, that would be great, if not, don't worry! Note for the Jam Sandwich maker - make sure you are very literal when you receive an instruction i.e. if they tell you to put jam on the bread then put the jar of jam on the bread!
- Game 2 - Mirroring activity. Stand in a space opposite their partner. One is the leader, the other the mirror. They place their palms together. The leader moves their hands and the mirror’s hands, still touching so they do exactly the same movements. Then children move their hands apart with space between the palms and repeat the activity, the mirror has to follow the leader’s palms with his. Then the children change roles with the leader becoming the mirror and they repeat the activity again.
