Thanks for visiting our site!
Many parents have questions similar to yours, and we've responded by posting a group of worksheets you can print out and work through with your child.
Click here for grouping worksheets.
Click here for language worksheets.
Also, along the right hand side of the screen on both of these pages is a complete list of the worksheets we have available. They are sure to come in handy when helping Michael to learn 'alike and different.'
We also suggest verbal exercises between you and Michael so the act of learning how to recognize 'alike and different', will help him think more critically. Try these activities out:
Make flash cards with letters on them. Put no more than four letters on a card.
For example: Which one is different?
You can do this with upper and lower case letters.
Another thing to do is sort socks together when you're doing the laundry. Matching is a good exercise to help your child recognize similar and different objects. You could even use bowls of different colors and sizes when eating, fruits of different sizes, or try cutting your child's lunch time sandwich into different shapes. Tell him to eat the circles first, or the squares, etc. This will also help him recognize objects that are alike and different.
Hopefully you will be able to take one or more of these suggestions and adapt them to Michael's age. Make it fun for him to learn!
If you have any other questions, please feel free to e-mail us again.
