Growing into Readers
- Count steps as you climb them, count steps to the end of the driveway or bus stop, count as your child jumps, or count objects as you buy them in a store.
- Use blocks, straws, sticks, and other objects to make shapes and create patterns.
- Ask kids to sort different shapes and colors as fast as they can.
- Play “I Spy” with shapes and colors. For example say “I spy a square,” or “I spy something blue.”
