I hope this letter finds you well. We have compiled some ideas for you and your child to help get though these days at home. We will miss you.
Below is a list of suggestions to use with your preschooler during the School closing.
*Read to your child throughout the day-
*ask your child to predict the story
* discuss the book as you read allowing your child to use deductive reasoning
ask why and how questions to encourage their reasoning process
*ask your child to recall details of the story (character names, setting of the story, problem in the story , resolving solutions in the end of the story)
Sing Songs- this is a great way to get your child engaged and help foster memory, articulation and word retrieval
Play Word Games- To help expand vocabulary give your child clues to a word and allow them to find the word on their memory bank. (for example I'm thinking of a word.........) Challenge them by using both nouns and verbs.
