Extending this activity

  • -Encourage the child to talk about what various objects are used for. If he is not sure, then tell him, and ask him the same question another day (For example: When you see a mail truck ask, “What is a mail truck used for?” "To bring letters to people’s houses.").

    -Read "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle. Peek ahead and describe each animal to see if the child can guess what comes next.

Adjust for an older child

Encourage the child to talk about how two objects are alike and how they are different. A spoon and fork are alike because they are both silver and we use them to eat. They are different because a spoon is better for eating cereal and a fork has grooves in it.

Adjust for a younger child

Encourage the child’s vocabulary. While sitting at the table, hold up an object and say the name together.
