Have A Ball

This week your child is learning the words plastic, metal, glass, and round. The words come from the book, Have a Ball. Explain what the words mean and talk about them with your child. As you’re going through the week, try to talk about each word three times.

Metal and plastic spoons

Plastic – hard, shiny material used to make many things, like balls and toys.

Metal – a hardy, shiny material. Many tools, car parts, and pieces of jewelry are made of metal. This picture shows a metal spoon and a plastic spoon.


Glass vase

Glass – hard clear material used to make things such as windows, bottles, and mirrors.

Round – shaped like a circle or sphere. Soccer balls, baseballs, and oranges are all round.

Congratulations, you are helping your child grow a large vocabulary!
