Parts of a Building

Learning the parts of the house is a great way for kids to learn about their families, the daily routine and chores, and to widen their vocabulary. Here you'll find information, games and activities to help your children learn this topic in a fun way.

Early learning at home is essential to children development, and one of the topics that can be taught effortlessly at this stage is the parts of a building. From the day the kids are born they start to get to know and relate to the place where they live, whether it’s a house, an apartment, or other types of structure. The first step is to learn important facts about their houses, such as the bathroom is were people take baths or brush their teeth, the bedroom is where people sleep, and the kitchen is made to cook the delicious food they eat.

As the little ones grow older, it becomes more important to know about the different parts of the house.  Learning about the rooms of a house and parts of a building helps widen children’s vocabulary and makes them more aware of their surroundings. This topic is also fun to learn because it’s a real-life situation that can be practiced in a natural way while they’ll learn a bit more about their towns, their family, the daily routine and also the daily chores around the house

Even though not all places are the same, whether kids live in a big house a small apartment, it’s useful to teach them the most common rooms and parts of a house, which are the ones that they’ll probably find wherever they go.

Here you’ll find vocabulary about the parts of a house and vocabulary about buildings you’ll also find some games and activities to practice this topic with your little ones.
