Oral Language Skills

Have you thought about how you express yourself. what your voice sounds like when you are in a rush, when you are anxious, scared or angry.  These pitches in your voice are often what your child picks up on and it is how they learn to respond to different situations.  They also learn the language that comes with those situations as often these are short phases or one word which is often at the developmental level of language our young children are banking in their word banks.

Children learn by listening and watching.  Reading stories is a great way for our children to learn about language.  Listening to the pitch in your voice as you read Dr Seuss "Green Eggs and Ham" talking to them as you go round the supermarket or pointing out letters and numbers on signs as you go for a walk all help our children with language.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! 

We look forward to spending another week with you this week and we discover and explore Gross Motor Skills.
