What Do You See?

Talk & Read Explore lots of words with your child.

PLAY

What Do You See?

Look in an unbreakable mirror with your child and talk about your faces and bodies (always monitor your child closely around mirrors). Where are your eyes? Find your hands! What about your elbows? Talking about specific body parts helps your child learn new words.


SING

Fee Fi Fo Fum: Fee fi fo fum

Fee fi fo fum, (bounce hand as fist)

See my fingers, see my thumb. (show fingers and thumb)

Fee fi fo fum, (bounce hand)

Goodbye fingers, goodbye thumb. (Fold fingers in, then your thumb, too!)
