I cannot tell you how excited I am to share this activity with you. My daughter just loved it! Teaching responsibility for preschoolers is super fun with this free leveled interactive book and memory game. Shiloh had so much fun with the book that we read it a few times the first day. Hubby was wishing that we had gotten a video because she was so enamored by it. Be sure to get the book, free memory game and check out all the other great ideas for teaching responsibility to preschoolers from the #TeachECE team.
Materials Needed for the Responsibility for Preschoolers: Leveled Interactive Books:
Clear velcro dots
2 book rings
Directions for assembling the file folder are included in the download, so I won’t write them all here.
I love this book because it gives Shiloh something to do while we read to her. This is a common thing in special education activities because it can be difficult to keep kids engaged in an activity if they are required to just sit and listen.
We read each sentence and then asked Shiloh to find the matching picture.
This also gave us some time to work on vocabulary skills and see what words we might be missing. In this case she repeated the main word from each sentence. “Teeth, fish, hair, bed, etc.”
Every page contains an “I can…” statement to show what a child can do each day.
Here are the included statements:
find my clothes | put on my shoes| brush my teeth | brush my hair | wash my hands | take a bath | put on pajamas
make my bed | turn off the light | pick up my toys | wash the window | sweep the floor
water my plant | feed the fish | feed the dog | feed the cat
Lots of great opportunities for your child to interact with book! You can take out any pages that don’t apply, like if you don’t have a cat or a fish. We included them for the vocabulary practice and she wasn’t bothered at all.
