Baby's First Games
This CELLcast has many delightful ideas for games that help your infant learn to play with others.
Infant Finger Drawing
This CELLcast has fun and interesting ideas on how to develop your infant’s pre-writing skills through finger painting and drawing.
Is your infant beginning to feed herself with a spoon? If she is, then it’s time to introduce her to crayons and other writing materials. Ideas can be found here!
Oohs and Aahs
Cooing and babbling is the beginning of your infant’s language
development. The Oohs and Aahs CELLcast includes fun-filled
ideas to increase your baby’s vocalizations.
Changing a baby’s diaper isn’t necessarily enjoyable, is it? Why not
make this routine a fun-filled activity to help your child learn
communication skills? Try out some of these ideas to make diapering
a fun early literacy activity.
Give Me, Give Me
Infants often use gestures to indicate what they want. Learning new gestures and movements helps your child ask for what he wants or needs.
The Right Touch
Infants love to reach and grab anything they can get their hands on! Touch-and-feel books are a fun way to involve your infant in exploring books.
Baby’s First Picture Books
Can your baby sit on your lap and reach for things in front of her? Wonderful! She’s ready for looking at picture books. Fun and interesting ideas found here!
Sights and Sounds
The more sounds an infant hears, the better she will be able to notice differences. This delightful CELLcast provides ways to expose your infant to new sights and sounds.
Literacy-rich home experiences occur many times throughout the day; like when an infant is snuggling in an adult’s lap as they look at a picture book or play peek-a-boo together; or when an infant in a highchair listens to her older brothers talk about their day at school. These are just a few of the many literacy-rich experiences you can provide your child in your home.
World of Words
Most any place in a young child’s neighborhood and community is alive with
words. The world all around us is rich in sights and sounds. They will capture a
baby’s interest in listening and talking. When you involve your child in activities
outside your home, you show him a world of words. Getting to read, talk, write,
and more are what we call literacy-rich activities.
