The goal of this week is to provide opportunity for your child to increase use, expand, and improve understanding of language through play.
Growing My Skills
If you are able, take a walk outside with your child, or look out the window, and find things that grow (e.g., a tree, flower). You can talk about how each day the plant gets taller and taller, and describe how it looks (e.g., color, shape).
Visual support is helpful for this activity, so consider taking a picture of it!
Return back to your home and use paper, makers, or whatever crafting supplies are accessible and make the plant!
Expressive language skills such as requesting and describing can be targeted by modeling the language or by prompting them to use their words to request for an art material.
Make your own and take turns with the materials to target turn taking.
Following directions and sequencing can be targeted with helping them organize and complete the steps to making the craft.
