Learning Tips

(1)

Sequencing Pictures: For this activity your child will need paper, markers, crayons, and a pencil. Discuss sequencing and why it is important with your child. Brain storm specific activities that your child completes every day (getting ready for school, eating breakfast, going to school, doing homework, playing sports, getting ready for bed, etc.) Have your child pick an activity and draw the activity in steps. Next, mix up the pictures, have your child place them in the correct order, and verbally explain the sequence of the activities.

(2)

Story Sharing: Read a story together with your child. Use an example from the story, maybe a place, person, or an activity, and have your child relate a shared experience. Maybe they have been to a place that is similar to the story’s setting and they can share that experience. Maybe they know someone who is similar to the main character. Have them discuss this person. If they have had an experience similar to the one in the story, have them compare the similarities and differences.

(3)

Topic Telling: You will need index cards and a marker for this activity. On each blank index card write topics such as places your child has been, activities they have done, events that have happened in their lives, etc. Ask them to pick a card and share their experience orally, in the order that it occurred. You can also turn this activity into a family game. Make this become a game of charades and have other family members guess what event, action, or place the person is attempting to act out.

(4)

Organizing Their Thoughts: There are often time when young children have a difficult time organizing their thoughts and placing their ideas in sequential order. Have them pick an event in their life (holiday, birthday party, or sleep over at a friend’s house) and list out what happened in order, in a list format. Help them condense their list and ask them to verbally share the event.

(5)

Holiday Preparations: Ask your child what their favorite holiday is. Have them draw a picture of this event. On the back of the paper, have them make a list, in order, of what they do to get ready for this holiday.
