Your Child's Development & Learning

Wait, That's Not How It Goes!}

Appreciation and Knowledge of Books and Stories, Phonological Awareness

Wait, That's Not How It Goes!

How many times have you read your child's favorite book... today? Well, take heart, you're helping to build her Awareness of Sound Patterns and memory of words and phrases. In fact, you may notice that she can complete many of the phrases, or even recite the words when looking at a book on her own. Stories with rhymes or repeating words helps develop this skill, so look for new books that fit this bill. At this age, children also enjoy looking at pictures of the people and places they love, so offer her a sturdy photo album to enjoy on her own.
