Think about the different senses and label
What do you see at the child’s level?
Label what you see with simple language.
1-2 words: tree, flowers, car, dog. Look doggie!
What do you hear?
Crunchy leaves, birds (tweet tweet), dog barking
(woof woof), cars (beep beep), airplane (ffffff)
What can you smell?
What can you touch?
Touch the leaves and grass
Get a bag and collect leaves
Model saying “Leaf” every time you put one in the bag
Use action words like “RIP” and rip the leaf “Crunch/Stomp” on the leaves
“Throw” the leaves up in the area
When you get home, tape the leaves to a piece of paper and model action words like “leaf”, “stick”, “on”
Sing songs while child is riding in stroller
Feel bumps in sidewalk – BUMP!
Get mail from the mailbox “open”, “close”
Wave and model “hi” to people you see
