This online education platform for birth - 5 learners and their families provides everything you need to continue education outside of the classroom and in the home.
FACT: When you point out the first letter in your child’s name, you help them learn to identify letters - an initial step towards reading and writing.
TIP: In the kitchen, find the first letter in your child's name on boxes and labels. Point it out with excitement. "Look, it's 'T' for Tanya. That's your letter!"
GROWTH: Keep celebrating your child’s special letter. Now say words that start with its sound: T-t-t Tanya. T-t-t tomato. Hunt for more "T" words together! Even if your child isn’t quite to the stage of letter identification, it’s a great way to practice new vocabulary.
FACT: The more your child knows about their body, the more they'll care for it. Talk to your child about their body parts and all they can do!
GROWTH: Keep talking about the body. As your child eats breakfast, name or ask them to name each body part that they're using: “You’re using your lips to pull the food off of the spoon”, “You’re chewing with your teeth”, or ask questions such as "Which body part are you using to chew?”
FACT: When you ask your child to help you prepare for activities, you're building their thinking skills, self-esteem, and confidence. Children love to help!
TIP: Get ready for bath time together! Say, "Time for a bath. What do we need? We need soap to get clean. What else? Yes, we need a towel. Good thinking!" If your child cannot yet answer such questions, you can simply talk them through the steps as you go.
GROWTH: Keep preparing for activities. At mealtime, ask: "Can you show me what we need to set the table?" Cheer your helper on: "You're right, we need forks!"
