SPRING IS HERE!!
This past PIT, we talked about spring and played with dirt, sticks and grass in a sand table. We learned about ducks, turtles and more spring things. We encouraged parents to talk to their children about the world around them. Naming objects in nature that they see and touch will encourage vocabulary development. When a word or noun is learned you can begin expanding this language by adding modifiers to the known words. “oh look, you found a stick” can expand into, “I see a BIG or LITTLE stick.” This is an easy everyday way to expand your child’s language.
Next PIT, we will be taking a real life adventure of our own! Join us as we walk on the beautiful trail around Mackworth Island. We will explore more of nature’s language all around us. See you on May 14th!
