Tips: As you read a book, hunt for familiar pictures or even letters that are in your child’s name.
Tonight, say a silly goodnight to your child’s nose, eyes, and ears. As you name each part, blink your eyes, wrinkle your nose, and wiggle your ears!
Growth: Before you child falls asleep, celebrate one problem they have solved today. For example, “You tried and tried to put on your sock, and then you did! Great work!”Talking about other people’s feelings helps children to learn how to consider others. This makes it easier to form friendships, share, and work together.
Tips: As your child is playing, point out how others are feeling, for example: “That boy is smiling. He looks happy to be playing at the park. You are happy at the park too!”
Growth: Keep talking about emotions. As you read, help your child relate to the emotions of the characters, for example: “That boy feels sad. Do you feel sad sometimes?”When reading is important to you, it becomes important to your child too. Reading print throughout the day, shows your child just how essential it is.
Tip: At home, read food labels, share why they matter, for example: “These words tell us what’s in the cereal. We need to know about that to stay healthy!”
Growth: Keep reading print! Now invite your child to point to words they want you to read. Look on signs, magazines, or toy boxes. As they see it, you say it!
