Learning how to communicate and form relationships with others is crucial in the development of a child. Although children are constantly increasing their language abilities simply by talking with classmates and teachers, listed below are a few specific examples of how we help children develop their verbal and written communication, or language.
- Learning songs and rhymes
- Offering group stories
- Providing an independent reading area and “listening center” with cassettes
- Tracing geometric shapes to increase fine motor control
- Tracing letters of the alphabet with “sand paper letters”
- Sequencing, patterning, matching and memory game
