Extending this activity

  • -Read “Cookie’s Week” by Cindy Ward. As you read, ask questions such as “What did Cookie do yesterday? What did she do today? What do you think she will do tomorrow?”

    -Play a game with your child using the terms "yesterday, today, and tomorrow." For example, you can say "I am thinking of something we did yesterday. We wore colorful swim suits. What am I thinking of?"

Adjust for an older child

Divide a piece of paper in three columns and label the left column “yesterday”, the middle column “today”, and the right column “tomorrow.” Have the child draw pictures or words of what he or she did each day.

Adjust for a younger child

Tell your child a story about the events that took place yesterday. Then at a different time, talk about the things you are going to be doing tomorrow. Each morning, talk about the events that are taking place that day. Your children may not be able to use these terms clearly, but hearing them repeatedly, associated with real events from their lives will help them understand when it is appropriate.
