Grammar Sprinkles - Personal Pronouns

Download and print this week's printable to learn the personal pronouns in Greek with your children!


 The equivalent set of pronouns in English are:

I
you
he
she
it
we
you
they


You can cut out the dotted part and keep it handy for when you need to get back to it. Help your child do the exercises. In the first one they have to fill in the missing letter while the second one is a wordsearch. Children love this one! Get them to find as many pronouns as they can (six in total).

Old McDonald had a farm in Greek

A lovely traditional nursery rhyme which all children love. My sister and I used to sing it when we were little and is as fun for my daughters today as it used to be for us back then! Find the words here and start singing it with your little one. You can add as many animals as you like! 


Great fun, way to learn your farm animals!

Grammar Sprinkles - Possessives

This week's Grammar Sprinkles is about possessives!


Learn and practice the possessives with your little one. You can practice with literally everything around your house by asking your child the question "Ποιανού είναι αυτό;" (whose is this?) and getting him to answer "Αυτό είναι το βιβλίο σου" and so on depending on the object in question. You could then get your child to ask you the question and you could provide the answer.

Uncle Brilio and the turkey

This song is about a turkey!



A turkey who was fed and fed and fed and fed until he got sooooo strong and big that he finally ate the farmer himself!

Animal masks - colouring pages

These lion, elephant and hippo masks can accompany your Greek animal words theme.



You can cut them and glue them on card paper and get your little one to colour them, or do some paper collage on them. Then you can staple a rubber band on the sides and voila you have a lovely animal mask! Alternatively you can get an ice-cream/ lollipop stick and glue it at the back of the mask for your child to hold the mask or even use them as puppets!
