Notes from Storytime

Let’s Talk About Getting Dressed

dressedWhile reading the book Time to Get Dressed by Elivia Savadier, point out some of the silly things that happen, for example, wearing socks on your hands or pants on your head. Encourage your child to talk and give them enough time to process and respond. Letting children answer questions, describe things, pretend to read, and talk about their day helps them develop their language skills.
