Stuck – Language activity

Languages of the world word cloud illustration. Word collage concept.

As part of our book week, we are looking at the story, Stuck. In the story, Floyd uses many objects to help him get his kite from the tree.

Your challenge is to research different ways you can say these objects in different languages. Can you teach other children on how to say these words in different  languages? Can you say a sentence using this object in that particular language? 

Here are the objects from the book:

Shoes, orangutan, cat, ladder, rhino, sailboat, ship, lorry, whale, lighthouse, house, milkman, sink, car, door, chair and a fire engine.

Perhaps concentrate on one object and research different languages for this object. Coming up with sentences will further your learning! Good luck and have fun!
