I take different size shoe boxes and label them….bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc. Then I go or have your children go thru old magazines and cut out pictures of things that belong in those rooms. They have a lot of fun sorting out the items. Also helps with the cutting skills.


For a a lesson that is hands-on and will cover a variety of objectives, I gather objects from four different rooms in the house, such as the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and the shop. I place the items in their own bag and them lay all of them out for the children to sort into the correct category. When this has been completed, use the objects play a simple game of “What’s missing?” or “What does not belong in this group.” These activities stimulate great vocabulary.


Have the teachers create a chart by putting different types of houses at the top. Such as a picture of a brick, or wood. A mobile home is the hardest to draw, but a rectangle works. Then have the children describe where they live. I once had a girl tell me she lived in a “purple bumpy house”. That one was unique so we made her own category. Some children will tell you barns. Add it on too. Then tally up the answers and write them at the bottom of the chart. Great math, language, and science.


I was given a good idea by a co-worker. I was told to bring in various types of flooring (tile, wood, carpet) and have the children feel each texture. This activity will obviously prompt a discussion about what they feel like, which rooms they might be in, etc. We’ll be trying this out next week!
