Extending this activity

  • -Practice using the same position words at the library. “I see an interesting book about snakes. It is next to the book on dinosaurs.”

    -Read the book, “Rosie’s Walk” by Pat Hutchins. Emphasize the position words used in the story as Rosie the hen goes for a walk.

Adjust for an older child

Combine number recognition with the position words. For example, “I spy an item that is next to the strawberries and its price is one, nine, nine. What is it?”

Adjust for a younger child

Start with the position words 'above' and 'below.' Give additional clues to help the child succeed. For example, you could say “I spy an item that is below the strawberries. It comes in a plastic container and it is blue. We eat them in muffins.” You may even need to point to the area to help the younger child.
