How to Play:
- Read this short poem to your child:
Johnny went to the market.
Johnny went to the store.
But when poor Johnny got there, he forgot what he went there for.
Momma gave him a list.
Momma gave it to him twice.
And what Momma wanted was a big bag of rice...
- Now say, "Momma wanted a bag of rice and carrots."
- Your child repeats that and adds another item, "Momma wanted rice and carrots and a cake."
- It's your turn. "Momma wanted rice, carrots, cake and a tulip." Take turns until someone gets an item out of order or forgets an item. Make it fun by adding items such as a football or alligators.5. Another version of this game is to highlight a letter sound. Let's say your child doesn't know w sound. Play this game thinking of items that begin with w such as, "Momma wanted a walrus, walnuts, wink and a wand."
