I call this the ‘nose’ sound.    This sound, just like “m” and “ing”, comes out your nose. If you plug your nose while trying to say the ‘n’, it sounds funny!

Please bring the Surprise Bag to school with an “n” sound item. Suggestions: nose, noodle, nickel, necklace, numbers, napkin, nail and knitting needles. 

Concepts/Vocabulary:

Near/far: Give your child 4 nickels (or any small item). Have them hide 2 near “the couch” and 2 far from the couch. Go find them based on directions. Now it’s your turn to hide the nickels.         

no/yes: Ask “yes/no” questions, “Do you like peanut butter?”, “Do cars have  wings?”, “Do trains fly?”

never/always: This is a good way to talk about rules. Answer never or always. Swim with an adult, wear a seatbelt, run with a scissors.

Night/day: Make a list of things you can do at night and things you do during the day .     

none/all: Use your ‘noggin’ to think of something fun and share it with me Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 1.30.13 PM

Neat/messy: Draw 2 pigs. Make a batch of pudding (or use ready made) and use as finger paint. Make one pig messy and leave one neat. Or….clean up your messy room!

new/old: Compare toys. Which ones look old, which look new? Why?  If you have a lot of toys you could have him/her choose 2-3 to donate!
