When your child starts kindergarten, she needs to be able to talk about things that happened in the past, are currently occurring (the present), or that will occur in the future. To help your child with this concept, give her four to five pictures of herself at different ages. Ask your child to put them in order. Have her talk about how she has changed over time. For more ideas on how you can help your child learn to talk about the past, present, and future, check out our July ParentTip on Looking at the Past, Present, and Future !
