Tip of the Day May 3, 2009

Storytime at home

Keep your junk mail and let your littlies use it for pasting. You can either cut out pictures for them or let the older children do their own cutting (with safety scissors of course). It keeps them busy for ages. If you have time to sit with them you can talk about what they are pasting. Use recycled paper or exercise books that have been purchased at back to school sales for as little as 1 cent each at the beginning of the year to paste in. Let them tell you the story of their picture and help them to write simple sentences underneath to encourage vocabulary and writing skills too.
