Extending this activity

  • -After doing this activity with your child several times, allow the child to talk about his day without the guiding questions. Remind him to use words such as: before, after, morning, afternoon, night, etc.
    -Read "Madeline" by Ludwig Bemelmans and talk through all the events that happen to Madeline and the other girls in the morning, afternoon, and night time.

Adjust for an older child

Create a chart with three sections: morning, afternoon and evening. As you talk about the child’s day, record the activities in the appropriate section. Use this information to create a schedule with times next to each activity.

Adjust for a younger child

Instead of quizzing your child about his or her day, ask about the afternoon. For example, “Let’s talk about your afternoon. What did you do after lunch? What happened next? What did you do before dinner? What happened afterwards? What did we do right before we came to bed?”
