Vroom Tip #878: Family Time
Try this Vroom Tip to build your child’s literacy skills and help them feel closer to family.
Invite your child to tell a story using family photos. Look through them together and ask what they want to say about them. Then write down the words they say. They can add drawings, scribbles, or letters too. They’ll be so excited to have their words written down!
Your child is using their focus and self-control to concentrate on looking closely at the pictures, while using their communication skills to figure out what they want to say and how to say it. When you make language and writing personal, you help them build a lifelong love of literacy.
