The 'Nativity Chatty Prompt Cards' are aimed at 2 - 6 year olds, to help them explore the story and the importance of each character found in the story. There are lots of different ways you can use these high quality double sided cards. The images were designed by me using fabric and free motion embroidery (drawing with thread) and have bee printed on 10cm by 10cm sturdy card stock.
There are lots of different ways you can use these prompt cards with children at home or in your teaching environment. The language aims to be such that some children will be able to read the sentences aloud and short enough to make sure less confident readers can have a go too. The questions are there to help you begin a conversation with the children to expand their understanding of the story and to begin to think for themselves about the reason that we celebrate Christmas every year. Some questions are there to spark their imagination but others are a way to begin to talk to your children about asking Jesus to be their forever friend.
The cards and decorations don't have to be looked at in chronological order and the questions will often bring new answers each time they're asked! Enjoy sparking these discussions with little (and bigger!) ones and help them to gain a deeper understanding of Christmas as the gift of Jesus.
Bring them out year on year to see how the answers change and make a new memory for this special time of year.
