In our infant program, we start using baby sign language from the earliest months. Baby signs are common terms that have been modified and simplified from American Sign Language. The sign for this month is “daddy”. To sign the word “daddy”, tap your thumb on your forehead repeatedly.
As toddlers continue to grow their vocabulary, it is important to read to them. Reading with your toddler builds stronger relationships, aids in language and listening skills, and enhances concentration and discipline.
This month, your child will continue to use descriptive words, understand the concept of three, and share family holiday traditions. Some suggested activities could include going on a color hunt around your home and giving your child three items to practice counting to three.
This month, your child will learn to use sequence vocabulary (i.e. first, second), recognize the meaning of holidays, and identify how families’ customs and traditions are similar or different.
This month, your child will giver verbal clues to describe objects, count from 1 to 100, and order the days of the week and months of the years sequentially.
