Goal Area: Receptive and Expressive Vocabulary

Materials needed: Laundry basket and clothing

Activity directions: 

  1. Have your child help with sorting the laundry. You can set up multiple laundry baskets to sort between various members of your family. 
  2. While sorting the laundry, model phrases such as “mommy’s sock”/ “daddy’s sock.” You can also work on sizes and have your child label “big pants” or “little pants.” 
  3. This activity can also be used receptively. For example, you can have your child find all of the socks and put them into a basket. In addition, you can work on early prepositions, such as “in,” “out,” and “on.” 

Helpful tips (if applicable): If your child has difficulty identifying various clothing items, hold up the clothing item you want the child to find or model what you would like your child to do.
