Making Captions

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 30-40 months

Duration of activity: 10 minutes

Materials:

  • Bond paper
  • Crayons or markers
  • Picture book (optional)

This is a fantastic way to show your child that words are talk written down. Your child will be particularly motivated to "read" her own words.

  1. Whenever your child draws or paints a picture, ask her to tell you about what she created. Write down her words, and create a caption for the art work. Be sure to read it back to her.
  2. As an alternative, you can show your child photos or pictures in a book. Invite her to supply a caption by asking her to tell a story about the picture. Again, be sure to write down and review her words.
