Learning Your Address and Phone Number
|Grades||K – 2|
|Activity Time||15 minutes over several days|
Children will learn their address and phone number to help keep them safe. Memorization strategies include singing, rhyming, and dialing using telephone keypad models for practice.
To help keep children safe, they should know their address and phone number. If they are lost or in trouble when away from home, they should have their phone number and address memorized so they can tell a safe grown-up how to reach their family. In this activity, children use a variety of motor, literacy, and communication skills as they sing songs, recite rhymes, and practice dialing, in order to memorize their phone numbers and addresses.
This activity was modified from the ReadWriteThink lesson plan “Teaching Language Skills Using the Phone Book."
