Day 29: Repeating a Short Sentence

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.

~ Repeating a Short Sentence ~

  • Play the “Copy-Cat Game”.  Ask your child to try and repeat everything you say.  Keep the sentences short (6-8 words) then extend the length when they are capable of remembering and repeating more.
  • Call-and-response games and songs. Acclaimed singer Ella Jenkins has several CDs with call and response songs for children.
  • Learn rhymes, fingerplays, and poems together. Here are some designed just for preschoolers.
  • Enjoy sing-along songs and say the words to your favorite songs together.
