January ILS: Inclusive Learning Services: Monthly Home Connections

Inclusive Learning Teacher Consultant:
Sing songs and nursery rhymes with your child. When children play with nursery rhymes, they learn all about rhyming and how sounds work. Nursery rhymes are easy to memorize and you can add new words to make them more engaging. (Twinkle Twinkle, London Bridge, Humpty Dumpty to name a few). Search Super Simple Songs for some fun and engaging versions of these classics.

Occupational Therapist: Play outside! Shovelling snow, pushing, pulling, rolling big snowballs to make snowmen, tromping through and rolling in the snow. Outside play can help regulate energy levels and to feel more calm. Outside play also develops motor skills in a fun, unstructured way.

Speech & Language Pathologist:
Read books with your child every day!
Talk about what is happening in the pictures
Make MORE comments and ask FEWER questions
Guess how characters might feel or what might happen next
