Curiosity Ignites Interest in Learning

Young children are naturally curious and adventurous. Something they see or experience, or even read about, feeds their enthusiasm for a subject. Think big machines, dinosaurs, rain puddles, big buildings, things that rhyme or the color pink. A child may develop a lifelong passion, or a passing interest, from something they read about or do with you when they are very young. Themed-based learning uses this topic-of-interest strategy to bring into focus a collection of activities and adventures that reinforce one another and become particularly memorable and impactful.

Building emotional literacy is important for young and old, alike. Being able to express ones own feelings....and recognize the feelings of others....will be valuable all through life. Games like this make developing emotional literacy fun and non threatening, so that when it comes right down to it, young children can label their feelings accurately and with ease.

Reposted from @songsforlittles Try for 16 gestures by 16 months! Gestures are so important! 🧠 If you wonder why I am always doing crazy things 😂 on our show, it’s usually because I’m trying to encourage these first gestures/milestones/building blocks of speech! Great ways to teach these to your child are:

⭐️use songs with the gestures
⭐️model them all the time by doing the gestures yourself
⭐️gently use hand over hand to help them do the gestures themselves
⭐️ make practicing them fun with games like patty cake!

Color and light!!

So many things you can do with color and light....

Get out the food coloring, water and eye droppers and explore what happens when you mix it up.

Find some paper and markers, pencils or crayons and draw your version of a rainbow -- or the planets.

Find some flashlights and have a couple of grownups shine lights on you as you dance around the room. Look for the shadows. Now do it in the dark.

Make up a song or a poem about your favourite color. Is it green, or violet or avocado or robin egg blue?!

Make a feelings chart using just colors. Now read the book My Many Colored Days. We bet @louisvillefreepubliclibrary has it.

Play the game red light, green light. If you don't know how...ask a grown up to look it up on the internet.

Can you think of anything animals that are certain colors for a reason? Have you heard of a chameleon? Do you know why leopards have spots?

What else can you think to do that involves light and color?

There are so many positive ways to communicate with our children 🤗 One great way to do this is to give them lots of praise! Here are some quick tips on parenting praise:

-It is an opportune time to reinforce good behavior!
-Making praise very specific, or "labeling", it can facilitate development and learning.
-Hugs, pats on the heads, pats on the back, and high-fives can add more power to the praise!

Thank you for the information @cdcgov !
