"Guess Who" Family Fun Game
Teach your child that you can develop descriptive sentences to describe more than just objects. Have fun describing characteristics of family members (in a positive way, of course). Here are some words for describing people: smart, pretty, beautiful, crafty, clever, kind, honest, or truthful. You could even play a game of "Guess Who I'm Describing".
Using descriptive sentences, describe a friend or family member without revealing the person's identity. It's fun guessing who the person is talking about, and as long as uplifting and positive words are used, it's a self esteem booster. We all like to hear the good qualities about ourselves, after all. This is a great game for family fun night.
Parents don't always need to provide structured table time to reinforce lessons learned in the classroom. Sometimes, the best teaching moments occur in places like the car or back yard.
Make use of those teachable moments, and your child's understanding of the benefits of using good descriptive words in sentences is sure to soar!
