Put five distinctly different pairs of socks into a laundry basket. Help your child look through the basket to find the matching pairs of socks.
How Is It Used?
Help your child understand and name objects by how they are used. Choose, for example several objects such as a fork, a pencil, a cup, and a pair of socks. Ask your child to show you the one we eat with, the one we wear, etc.
Oodles of Noodles
Have your child cover a sheet of paper with glue or paste. Then let him or her arrange dried noodles all over the paper. Hang it up for everyone to see.
From red construction paper, cut out a large circle, a medium-sized square, and a small triangle. Cut the same shapes from blue construction paper and yellow construction paper. Mix up the shapes and lay them out on a table or on the floor. Have your child sort the shapes into piles by color, by size, and then by shape.
Watch a Thanksgiving Day parade on television. Talk about the things you see such as musical instruments, floats, balloons, spectators, and marchers. Listen to the music. For more fun, go to a local parade, or have your own parade.
