Use hand actions for your favorite rhyme or song, or make up your own. Face your child and hold their hands so they mirror you. Vary your tone of voice from high to low and use a big, expressive way of speaking or singing.
See what your child is learning
Rhymes and songs are great for early reading skills. Plus, the mirrored actions teach left to right tracking, also an important part of reading. This kind of speaking is extra engaging for your child. It can add brain-building to any chat in an interesting and fun way!
