What’s Wrong? – Play a visual discrimination game in your home. While your child is out of the room, turn some objects upside down or put them in the wrong place. Then ask your child to identify what is different.
Observing & Classifying How Things Move – When you are outside, ask your child to look for different animals and watch how they move. Some animals run, some crawl, some slither, and some fly. Help your child make a list of the animals you observed and categorize them according to how they move.
Searching for Shapes – Help your child find shapes around the house, in books, or in magazines. Ask your child to identify basic geometric shapes, such as squares, circles, rectangles, and triangles.
Fun Park Plan – Encourage your child to plan a new water park or amusement park. He or she can draw a map of the park, including a map key. Remind your child to include restrooms, a parking lot, and other features that he or she may forget.
Animal Campaign – Ask your child to make a poster for a misunderstood animal, such as a spider, a snake, or a bat. Your child’s poster might explain why people should respect the animal.
