- Select safe, educational toys…such as those that need to be put together.
- Play games—especially those that have educational value, like number games, guessing games, word games.
- Encourage your child to do projects with other children. He/she will learn to cooperate and his/her social skills will improve.
- Take your child on the train, bus, streetcar or airplane.
- Listen to your child…encourage him or her to ask questions, discuss ideas and tell stories.
- Select activities that fit your child’s level of development, ones that he or she can learn from and enjoy.
- And be sure to set a good example. If you are interested in learning, your child probably will be, too. For instance, set a family reading time or some other organized learning activity and share experiences.
- Learning is a skill and like other skills it improves with practice…so give your child the practice he or she needs to develop learning skills!
