Preschoolers
Growing into Readers


Talking Activities


  • Plan a trip to the grocery store. Write your list and then, discuss the items you need to get and the isles they are down. Discuss what foods you will make with each item and where it is located in the store. “We’re getting milk near the dairy isle.”
  • Talk about what happened during your day. Ask lots of open ended questions, “What was your favorite part?”
  • Have your child tell you a story and you write it down, they can also draw the pictures. You will love to look back on these years later.
  • Skills Learned: Speaking, listening and comprehension, questioning skills, problem solving, knowledge of self and others, history.
