We've played lots of games of charades and I try as much as possible to connect their reading to real life experiences. Some of the reading material approved by the Ugandan government does a good job of relating to the village lives of children.
Yesterday I took things a step further by taking a group of girls outside to try and find the plants pictured in their book. We had to hunt for a while but the excitement when one of them spotted a sisal plant was well worth it.
Fibre from this plant is used to make rope and twine.
