Reach for the Sky

Toddler At an Appointment

Make your waiting time fun! Ask your child, “Can you do this” and hold your hands up very high and say, “Reach for the Sky” Invite them to copy you. Next, put your hands behind your back and see if they copy you. Then take a turn and copy them.

See what your child is learning

When your child tries to copy your movements, they’re using focus and attention. You’re sharing new words and helping them make connections between words and what they represent. These are the building blocks of learning how to talk and read.
