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.

Variety is the spice of life! Swap out boring sandwiches for simple and healthy alternatives, like crackers and cheese, veggie or fruit kebabs, pasta salad, or breakfast for lunch (such as yogurt and granola, or whole wheat waffles).
