It is so fun to see these little ones start to participate! Remember, don't force (or bribe) participation. Your child will participate when he/she feels comfortable. He/she is learning just by listening and watching.
Also, the more you play the music at home, the more quickly your child will feel comfortable in class. They will recognize the songs and feel soooo smart!
Tracking is an important literacy skill where the eyes move smoothly from left to right and send input to help the brain decode each symbol. When we point in the Student Workbook, this guides the eyes and supports the brain’s ability to collect the information. We include many opportunities to practice tracking in The Counting Song, The Letter of the Day, and Hey Diddle, Diddle! Model and enjoy this valuable skill at home as you sing and play with the Student Workbook.
Optional home fun activity: Color the bells on page 9 of your workbook.
(Remember, these activities are optional but can be a great bonding experience to do with your child during the week.)
