Day 31: Understanding the Meaning of Simple Words

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.

~ Understanding the Meaning of Simple Words ~

  • While reading a story, stop once in awhile and talk about what’s happening.
  • As you drive in the car, point to street signs or billboards and ask your child if they know what it means. If they don’t know, tell them.
  • Read directions and have your child do what they say. Talk about the things they don’t understand.
  • Have your child act out or talk about words. Play preschool charades!
  • Talk with your child about everyday things. Listen to the questions they are asking and what they think things mean. You’ll be glad you did!
