Learning at Home

Setting the Table

You Will Need:

Silverware and napkins

Directions:

Explain to your child how to set the table, and then set it with your child. After the first few times, your child might be able to do it herself. . Ask your child how many people will be at the table and how many of each item she needs.

Tip:

Helping at mealtimes is a wonderful way to spend time together when you have chores to accomplish. Don't worry too much about correctness of placement - focus more on the concept that each person gets one plate, one cup, etc.
