Sit on the floor holding your child on your knees. Gently move them up and down, side to side, and explain what’s going on. “Now you’re going up, up in the sky” “Now you’re moving over to the door” or “down, down to the ground” Make up new ones as you go!
See what your child is learning
As you bond and play with your child, you’re sharing the joy of moving with them and introducing words that describe moving and where things are. These are important math concepts.
