KEEPING YOUR CHILD’S BRAIN ACTIVE

KEEPING YOUR CHILD’S BRAIN ACTIVE

Boost your child’s literacy and cognitive development with these easy, fun tips. Children and adults can enjoy these activities together while sharing experiences and making memories.

  • READ: Read anything from cereal boxes, candy wrappers, comic strips, maps and, of course, books! Play word games like Boggle or Scrabble.
  • TALK: Ask questions, ask for more information, ask for an opinion, discuss ideas, put on puppet shows, tell stories, sing or tell jokes.
  • WRITE: Write stories, poems, lists and letters. Draw, paint and chalk with at-home art supplies. Observe and record the world around you.
