Using Texts to Play and Talk Together

When adults play and talk together with children they play alongside children, following the child’s lead, modelling language and social interactions through play. Using a text as a stimulus, practitioners can plan their environment to enable play based experiences related to the text to support children’s language and motor skill development. This can be used alongside the guidance in Sequence and Narrative development through the development of children’s retelling skills.

The ‘Using Texts to Play and Talk Together‘ document provides guidance on how practitioners can use the plan-do-review model to plan for play based experiences that provide children with the opportunity to engage with texts, reflecting on their play. The model provides the opportunity for the adult to play and talk together with the children as well as observing children’s play.
