Ms. Christina’s Early Learning Tips (ELTs)

Printable PDF:

Sing!

SINGING introduces new vocabulary, slows down words, and repeats them. CLAPPING along draws attention to the syllables and increases phonological awareness.

Rhyme!

FINGER PLAYS and ACTION RHYMES introduce new vocabulary while improving manual dexterity and hand-eye coordination — which are important skills for handwriting — while movement and rhyme aid memory.

Play!

NARRATIVE PLAY promotes emotional intelligence, creativity, and gives kids a chance to practice new language and concepts without pressure. Have them make their own simple puppets and act out their own stories.

Searching games like HIDE AND SEEK introduce new vocabulary and problem solving as kids try to figure out where the hidden object or person is.

Read!

READING just twenty (20) minutes with your child every day exposes them to 1.8 million words a year and sets the foundation for all subsequent learning. Have your child practice telling you the title of the book, the author’s name, and their favorite part or character.

Review!

Find the songs and fingerplays on “Sing, Rhyme, and Play with Ms. Christina” on YouTube and practice them together with your child. You’ll both have fun and they’ll be learning from their BEST TEACHER, YOU!
