Day 30: Completing Sentences

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.

~ Completing Sentences ~

  • Use stamps or stickers and make a rebus rhyme together. A rebus or pictogram is a story that uses pictures for certain words. The picture gives children a clue as to which word is missing.  It also gives them as general idea of what the story is about. Here is a selection of rebus rhymes to print out and use at home.
  • Begin saying a sentence about a place you’ve gone or things you’ve done and drop off the final word, as if you “forgot” what you are going to say. Allow your child time to pick it up, or ask them to help you remember.
  • Write sentences on index cards.  Leave a word out and ask your child to put a word in the blank. For example, “I like to play with my [fill in the blank].” Anything that makes sense is the right answer.
  • Make a book using a similar procedure.  Have your child cut out pictures to place in the space. This can be changed to words later on. Have them say the words or names of the pictures they are using.
