Knowing the Proper Place for Objects and Toys

“Have You Seen The Cordless Phone?”—-“No, But Why is the Dog Ringing?”

  • Everything has a place.  During daily routines, show and tell your child where things are located (shoes in the closet, coat on the coat rack, toys in the toy box).
  • Place your child’s toys and other items in specific locations (e.g., books on a shelf, cars in the bin, balls in a box, etc).
  • Get your child’s attention as you remove and replace toys and objects from their appropriate locations.
  • Ask your child to retrieve objects and see if he knows where they are kept.  Later ask your child to put them back.
  • Provide helpful hints as your child attempts to put toys and objects away (The ball goes in the box next to the books).
