Naming Categories

“Name Calling”

  • Organize your child’s toys into categories by placing them in different bins (e.g., cars with cars, blocks with blocks).  Have him help put away the toys in their appropriate bin. Read books to your child on animals, transportation, foods, etc.
  • Allow your child to help put away the laundry (e.g., socks in the drawer, shirts in the closet, etc).
  • Have your child help put the groceries away (e.g., snacks in the cabinet, fruits in the drawer, vegetables in the bin).
  • Talk about and describe the various objects and why they belong in the same group. Label the categories that each item belongs to (e.g., pants, shirts, and hats are all clothes).
