You can make words come alive through storytelling and acting out the words.
- Preschoolers love to be busy and to copy their friends.
- Being able to peddle, jump, run fast and climb makes games like chase, tag, and hide-and-seek super fun with friends.
- Preschoolers hands and fingers can color, paint, do puzzles, and build with Legos.
- Your child’s use of words help them connect with you, but also helps them learn through storytelling.
As children develop movement and word skills, you can make words come alive through telling and re-telling of stories. This is a great way to bring together different areas of the brain. Acting out the stories brings in their bodies, too! Adding friends is a good idea because preschoolers love to hang out together.
