Tips for Families

Help your child develop an interest in writing by putting your child's name on a drawing; making and signing a card; making a grocery list or writing messages to people. To help your child succeed you can: add simple pictures to the words or take a product with a big label and have your child copy words from the label.

Tips for Teachers

Clap a rhythmic pattern. Have children imitate the pattern. Continue adding other actions for the children to imitate. Add snapping, drumming, stomping, and tongue clicking.
