Follow the instructions to find the hidden treasure

Communication, Language and Literacy – Reading

Development matters: Know information can be relayed in the form of print (30–50 months); Enjoy an increasing range of books (40–60+ months).

Early learning goal: Know that print carries meaning and, in English, is read from left to right and top to bottom.

What you need

A set of instruction scrolls to help find the treasure (these instructions should be numbered and could include picture clues as well as written) and some treasure (perhaps a new toy or book for the setting).
