Day 46: Understanding Front & Back

Here is another learning activity adapted from our “Home Preschool Curriculum” developed by Fran Wisniewski and Diane Flynn Keith for

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 Front & Back ~

  • When you are waiting in line at the bank, post office, or grocery store, talk to your child about where you are in the line. For example, “We are in back of the lady in the blue blouse and in front of the man with the red baseball hat.”
  • Matching Game: Get a magazine and cut out pictures that depict an entire animal, vehicle, or other object. Paste the pictures on index cards. Cut the cards in half and ask your child to match the front and back parts together like a puzzle.
  • Show your child the front and back of different objects such as books, boxes, and clothing. Allow your child to compare the backs and fronts of objects.
