7 tips for nurturing early skill experience

  • Talk to your kids from day one. Once you are doing the laundry, name the colors of the garments. Once you are preparing dinner, name the ingredients and therefore the different steps. Use each chance to introduce your kid to new vocabulary, regardless of how easy. You will be setting your kid on the trail to becoming a lifelong learner.
  • Surround your kid with reading matter. Make your kid aware that words are everywhere—on cereal boxes, milk cartons, signs, even on toys! Facilitate him or her notice that words are made from individual letters, which letters have names and sounds. Be a part of the local library to add variety to the books you have at home.
  • Read to your kid every day. No matter how busy you are, set aside ten minutes a day!
  • Praise your kid often. Make him or her feel inspired to explore, learn and experiment.
  • Take regular visits to the library. Even though you go only once a month, this can be an outing which will benefit the complete family.
  • Write the names of common objects on index cards. Tape labels on the objects (such as table, chair, door, etc.) in your child’s room. This can facilitate him or her perceive that those squiggles on the page, when organized in certain combos, stand for something. Do not forget the foremost necessary word of all: your child’s name!
  • Encourage skill in other kids, too. Share the gift of skill with others by donating used books, or inviting kids with you on visits to the library.
