Snack time is a great opportunity for talking! While you are sharing a snack (maybe of some healthy fruits or veggies) ask your child how they like what they are eating. Use new words to describe taste and texture of food. This is a special time to bond that also allows your child to gain an understanding of the back-and-forth of conversation.

Don’t forget to add your books to your 1000 Books Before Kindergarten log and check out our Pinterest Page for more Early Literacy ideas and book suggestions.

See you soon!
