Early Literacy Tip and Activity:

Tip

Learning through play is relaxed, fun & creative. Through a single enjoyable activity. you child can learn about following directions, taking turns, and showing appreciation to others, all skills that are necessary for healthy development.

- Lambert

Activity

Recite the “Hickory, Dickory, Dare,” rhyme while holding a small, stuffed bear or a beanbag. Throw the bear up in the air and catch it. Then give your child a chance to toss the bear. Very young children might need a parent to guide their hands as they toss the animal. Make sure to clap and congratulate her efforts. This is a great family activity where everyone can clap for and encourage each other.
