February: Inclusive Learning Services: Monthly Home Connections

Inclusive Learning Teacher Consultant

Build your child’s counting skills. Count out loud regularly and count items (ie. let’s put five blocks on the tower or counting the ducks floating in the bathtub). Start with 1-5 and slowly increase as your child gets more confident with numbers. Use number word vocabulary, (a lot ,few, a little, more less, same). Do you want a lot of goldfish or just a few? Who has more goldfish? One to one correspondence is important too. Have your child give one lego to each stuffed animal, or one cup to each family member.

Occupational Therapist

When it is just too cold to be outside, make obstacle courses! Move couch cushions and pillows onto the floor and walk or crawl over them. Play ‘Follow the Leader’ and climb in/out of boxes or the laundry basket, crawl over/under/around obstacles. This is a great activity for developing core muscles.

SLP (Speech and Language Pathologist)

If your child makes a speech sound or grammar mistake, say the sentence back to them correctly and emphasize the sound or word they made a mistake on. Your child does not have to copy you, the focus is on hearing a correct model. - Speech sound example: - Child: “Tan you help me?” - Adult: “Yes, I can help you” - Grammar example:
