The goal of this week is to work on pragmatic language skills of taking turns, receptive language skills of answering “wh-” questions and expressive language skills of expanding utterances and talking about attributes of common items.
Growing My Skills
Fill a bucket, tub or pool with water and place water-safe items inside.
During water play discuss which items are “heavy” and “sink” and which are “light” and “float.”
Have your child help fill up water balloons – discuss colors and that the water goes inside the balloon to change its size and shape.
Take turns tossing water balloons. Label whose turn it is!
Make a rain stick using the materials listed above. Have your child use their words to request specific items that they need/want.
Talk about what rain sounds like and play with rain stick.
