Week 22

Talk, Sing, and Point


(Ages 1-3)

Fill in the blank.
When you sing your child's favorite songs, leave out words for them to fill in. Or you can say the wrong word and see if they catch you.


(Ages 0-1)

Use playful voice.
Smile and look into your baby's eyes. Exaggerate the sounds of words.
