Before, During and After Reading
This is a good book to read in the morning when your child is first waking up. For example, as your child is waking up, use his blanket to play peek-a-boo.
Ask your child to look for familiar objects in the picture. For example, Look at this picture. Can you touch the teddy bear? Or, I see a train. Show me the train.
Play peek-a-boo throughout the day with familiar objects. Hide each object where it is easily seen, to set your toddler up for success. For example:
- At snack time, place a bottle at eye-level and ask your toddler to find the bottle.
- Hide your toddler’s favorite toy, blanket or pacifier in plain sight and say, I see your blanket. Where could it be? and go on a search together.
- Cover your head with a blanket and see if your toddler can find you.
- Find pop-up toys where your child has to push a button or turn a dial to make the character pop up. Say Peek-a-boo I see you! when they appear.
- Try an at-home activity like Peek-A-Boo Letters to help with letter knowledge.
