Before eating, grab a napkin, cup, plate, and silverware. Where should each item be placed? Use this placemat as a guide, or make up your own. Use spatial words to give directions like:

  • the fork goes on the left side of the plate
  • the napkin goes under the fork
  • the knife goes to the right of the plate
  • the spoon goes to the right of the knife
  • the cup goes next to the plate and above the knife

For more fun, create your own placemats for where to place veggies, protein, etc. on your plate!
