Learning to Predict PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Use household materials to make a game to help your toddler learn to make predictions.

What You Need:

  • Cardboard tube (e.g., paper towel or wrapping paper roll)

  • Small ball

What To Do:

  1. Hold the tube higher at one end.

  2. Have your child put the ball in the higher end of the tube.

  3. Guide his attention as you play.  “There goes the ball! It’s coming through the tube.”

  4. At first, he may look into the tube to find the ball. After a few times, he will begin to expect the ball to appear at the other end.

  5. Hold the tube in different ways to make the ball move fast or slow.
