Growing into Readers

Talking Activities

  • Talk about spatial relationships (first, middle, and last; right and left), opposites (up and down; on and off), and directionality (over, under, next to, in back of). Model and encourage your child to description words in their vocabulary.
  • Help your child follow two- and three-step directions: "Go to your room, find your pajamas and bring them downstairs."
  • While shopping for groceries, discuss what you will buy, how many you need, and what you will make. Discuss the size (large or small), shape (long, round, square), and weight (heavy or light) of the packages.
