“Tag, You’re it”
Continuing interactive games is important because learning is very much a social activity.
- Initiate play with a cause-and-effect toy that your child is especially fond of (e.g., See-and-Say; talking/dancing characters). After initiating an action of the toy, wait to see if your child will prompt you to again cause the toy to operate.
- Sing and gesture finger play songs (e.g., Wheels on the Bus; Itsy Bitsy Spider, Row, Row, Row Your Boat). Suspend your singing and wait for a signal from your child to continue. If no signal is observed prompt your child with the “F-E-A-T-S” method.
