Familiar Scenes

Children are able to categorize familiar objects in familiar spaces when they are toddlers. Matching dishes and pans to the kitchen scene, playground equipment to the outdoors, and people to chairs and couches will help them organize their thinking about what belongs where at home and outside.


There is a kitchen matching page where family faces and objects may be added to the scene.


There are icons to print and use for generic work at school or for additional activities. Parents and teachers may also cut out pictures of family and student pages for the centers.


This is a picture of one of the pages ready for the icons.


The “people” might like to sit in the living room.


Or have dinner together. It might be a birthday party!


Later they may go to a park. See if the children make appropriate matching of objects to the scenes. Is the slide outside or on the kitchen counter?
