Growing into Readers

Playing Activities

  • Play outside. Go for a walk, do an obstacle course, family bike ride. Get outside for at least a half hour every day.
  • Baking, mixing, measuring, and cooking all introduce your preschooler to scientific, math, cause and effect and language skills. Talk about concepts such as measurements, more or less, hot vs. cold, baking/cooking. .
  • Growing plants teaches preschoolers the basics of how plants grow and what they need to thrive. Plant flowers, vegetables, herbs or go big and plant a garden.
