Reading: Shared reading is the most important activity you can engage in with your child to help them develop the skills needed to learn how to read. Make a goal to read for 15-20 minutes every day.
Writing: Reading and writing go hand in hand. When children see print being used in their daily lives, they begin to understand that there is a connection between printed letters and spoken words.
Singing: Singing to or with your child helps them learn new vocabulary and slows down language so that they can hear the individual sounds and syllables in words. Your child loves to hear the sound of your voice, so don't worry if you can't sing!
Talking: Children learn new words and concepts by listening to adults speak and joining in the conversation. Ask your child open ended questions that begin with wh- (who, what, where, when, why) to encourage back and forth discussions.
Playing: Play allows children to explore and learn about the world around them, put their thoughts in words by talking about what they are doing and provides opportunities for positive social interactions with others.
