Here is another learning activity adapted from our “Home Preschool Curriculum” developed by Fran Wisniewski and Diane Flynn Keith for UniversalPreschool.com.
Remember, only do these learning activities if they are enjoyable for you and your child. Do not treat this as a “must do” lesson. It’s simply a fun activity that provides an opportunity to learn, while building “readiness skills” for the school or homeschool environment.
- Play “Who Remembers?” – Using pictures from magazines, photos, books, or advertisements, look at the picture with your child and discuss the picture together. Point things out to one another. Turn the picture over or cover it with something and talk about what you remember most about the picture.
- Play “What’s Missing From This Picture?” – Compare two similar pictures to see what is different in each one. Highlights magazine and some newspapers include this game in each issue. Here is a game you can play online.
- Make your own “What’s Missing Picture?” – Use a digital camera for this activity. Just make a scene, and take the picture. Then, remove or add things to your scene and take another picture. Have your child pick out the differences.
