Find the Opposites

Pre-Schooler At an Appointment

When you’re waiting somewhere, ask your child to play “Find the Opposites” with you. You call out something big and they respond with the opposite, something small. Start with easy comparisons, like big and small, high and low, or near and far.

See what your child is learning

When your child learns opposites and distances (near and far), they’re learning ideas they’ll use in math, science, and reading. Remember, it’s always important to play these games in a back and forth way because that is how your child learns best.
