The goal of this week is to provide an opportunity for your child to increase use, expand, and improve understanding of language through play.
Growing My Skills
Read Put Me In the Zoo by Robert Lopshire Youtube Read Aloud and The View at the Zoo by Kathleen Long Bostrom “Let’s Go to the Zoo” Youtube Read Aloud (Depending on your child’s language skills, you can read the words from the page or use your own words to provide a simple description of the pages).
Describe what animals you see at the zoo.
Allow for your child to also make comments on the pictures.
Create your own zoo with legos, working together.
This activity allows for language skill targets like turn-taking, requesting, following directions.
Work together to build one zoo enclosure or build your own and use describing language to talk about yours to model language for your child.
