📘 How can Parents help at Home?

🏠Parents can show many places in the neighborhood like a hospital, bus stop, school, playground, fire station, post office, bank, market, and a police station

🏥Parents can talk about the hospital as a place where a person with an injury or accident can be rushed and their life can be saved.

🏛Parents can talk about police stations that protect the public against violence, crime, and other harmful acts. 

🏫Parents can talk about school provides education and it is important for kids because it provides them with the skills they need to succeed in life.

📬Parents can take their children to Post offices to deliver essential services to communities, including universal access to mail and parcels, but also access to benefits, bill payment, and banking services.

🗣️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 sound identification through books can be done and jolly phonic songs are easily available on 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.
