Magnetic play with animals and humans in the veterinary clinic
A wonderful magnetic book with the veterinary clinic as its theme. There are hours to be spent and endless opportunities for play and learning here. The book contains many magnetic animals, people and clinical equipment that you can move around while telling fun stories and learning language.
All parts are stored easily and securely inside the book when not in use. The book has raised magnetic edges so that all the magnets are kept together. This magnet book is great to have with you on the go.
Recommended from 3+ years. The book measures 25 x 21 cm, and 25 x 67.5 cm when opened out. It contains 77 pieces.
How to play and learn with the veterinary clinic magnet book:
We believe this material (and all the other magnet books for that matter) encourages a lot of play, learning and language. If you want to get the most out of these magnetic books, it’s a good idea to play with a parent or other caregiver. You can either let the child take control of the game and see what happens, or the adult can take control and direct the game towards the area you want to practice with the child. You can, for example, play as follows:
- Increase vocabulary for words found in and around a veterinary clinic. You can focus on nouns such as dog, cat, lady, etc. But also describing words such as hurt, sad, scared, etc.
- Learn to categorise the different animals: dog, cat, fish, birds. Or other categorisations such as large/small, short legs/long legs
- Invent or talk about stories that can unfold in the veterinary clinic. Let their imagination run free.
- Increase the child’s understanding of prepositions by moving the magnets around the book. Upstairs, downstairs, inside, out, up, down, inside, under, next to, etc.
- Give the animals each their sound and practice mouth movements and pronunciation …
The magnet book contains many magnetic motifs and there is a lot for small children to get to grips with. This means that there is not enough room for all of them in the book at the same time. Therefore, we recommend that you only take a chosen number for the game and save the rest for later use. Feel free to do so before presenting the book to the child.
