When I set them up with a hands-on activity
When I give them space to read and write on their own
When I tell them what to do and how to do it
When I show them an illustration to help them "get it."
They read out the details.
They ask me and then use the toy.
They try to know every detail by reading.
They use it to know how it works.
The one with a lot of pictures
The one with exciting characters and stories
Any book that I'll read out to them
They don't like books.
Their paint-set, pencil crayons, and coloring book!
Their light-up microphone and dance mat!
Anything and everything they can play with outside!
Their LEGO, jigsaw puzzles, and board games!
They remember everyone they meet.
They take time to recall but recognize after some time.
They might not remember the person.
They could only recall if I would explain them.
Making them quiet
Getting them to focus.
Stopping them doodling
Encouraging them to take the lead.
Show the example
Tell them what to do.
Jump in straight
Read out the dos and don'ts
They listen to music.
They play 'I-spy.'
Keep asking, are we there yet?
Ask me to tell stories
Playing an instrument
Heading to the local park
They look at the words and their writing.
Say it loud
Imagining what else can be done with the letters
Visiting an aquarium
Going to a funfair
Heading to a fun park
Roaming here and there on the roads
