Kids need to have a strong vocabulary before they start to read. There are a lot of easy and fun vocabulary-building activities that parents could do to teach kids new words. A great way to introduce kids new words is to help them visualize. The more words kids see and hear, the more they will learn and absorb.
This worksheet provides a picture dictionary of major house exterior parts. House exterior parts shown in the picture include: chimney, door, dormer, driveway, gable, garage, lawn, planting, porch, roof, steps, and window. Kids should realize the correspondence between the picture and the real house parts. With this worksheet, parents could play house-parts games with kids. You may ask your kids to name a specific house part or identify a house part by giving a name. The goal is to let kids get familiar with the most visible house parts, and add these new words to their vocabulary.
