Early Learning - WRITE & PLAY

This final post of the early learning series will highlight two prereading skills:  Write and Play 

Play is the work of children. They develop early writing skills by drawing and scribbling.

EARLY LEARNING TIPS

EARLY LEARNING ACTIVITIES

  • Let your child drop small items such as buttons and leaves into a glass (or bucket) of water. Observe, do they sink or float?
  • Hide objects or pictures around the house, then give your child a word and send her on a rhyming scavenger hunt.
  • Form green balls and yellow balls with play dough. Help your child make a patterned caterpillar body. Green, yellow, green...
  • Give your child bowls and a wooden spoon to “make dinner” as you’re making dinner.
  • Choose a letter. Ask your child to find as many objects as they can that start with that letter.
  • Play restaurant with your child using recycled containers and leaves for “food.”
  • Put together a puzzle together as a family.
