📘 How can Parents help at Home?

👩🏻‍🤝‍👨🏼We all should respect community helpers because they devote their time, happiness, and energy to us.

👨‍👩‍👧Parents can talk about people who help them.

🙏Address them respectfully.

👨‍👩‍👧Parents can introduce the people who make your community work.

🙏Parents can show them how you say “Thank You” to your helper and show your appreciation.

🙏Parents can teach their children to treat domestic helpers with immense respect and kindness

and teach kids at home to respect and speak kindly to them.

🗣️Talking enables children to expand their vocabulary and understanding of the world. The ability to carry on a conversation is important for reading development

📖Encourage your child to pretend to read, especially in books that contain repetition and rhyme. Most children who enjoy reading will eventually memorize all or parts of a book and imitate your reading. This is a normal part of reading development.

🙎🏻Encourage your child to express himself or herself. This will help your child develop a richer vocabulary. It can also help with pronouncing words clearly

🎵Letter sounds identification through books can be done and jolly phonic songs are easily available in YouTube. Activities such as circling the letter sound in newspapers or magazines at home.

🔢Numbers can be revised through objects, number books, puzzles, and number cards if available at home.

🧺Parents can encourage their child, without touching the objects, to sort things that are heavy and things that are light.

🥣Give your child plastic bowls or straws or pencils of varying sizes.

🏀Stacking and sorting toys are a great way to teach your child the difference between big and small.
