Help her with these skills whenever you can. It is something you can do easily as you go through your daily life. Here are a couple of examples:
• When cleaning up toys, ask your child to sort them in different ways each time. One time, you could ask her to put all the toys with wheels in one pile. Another time, you could ask her to put her toys on one shelf and the baby’s toys on a different shelf.
• At the grocery store, point out things that belong together as you go down the aisles. For example, “Here are apples, and there are the oranges and bananas. They are all fruits.”
Or, “Look, the milk is next to the cheese and yogurt. Did you know we get all these foods from the milk cows give us?”
