Scribble Fun

Your toddler may not be making any letters yet, but there is a good chance he is practicing writing. Toddler writing can range from making a single mark on a page to filling up the entire page with scribbles or even scribbling out horizontal lines that begin to resemble writing. These simple scribbles are important stages that will help your toddler develop writing skills. Find time for supervised scribbling whenever you can and give meaning to your little one's marks by placing them on the wall or even sending them as a letter to someone special. And don't forget to let him watch you write too!


SING

Drive Your Truck

(To the tune of: "Row Your Boat")

Drive, drive, drive your truck,
All around the town!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Up the hills and down.

Turn, turn, turn the key,
Make the engine roar!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Let’s go to the store.

Press, press, press the pedal,
Give the engine gas!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we’re going fast!

Turn, turn, turn the wheel,
That is how we steer!
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Make a turn right here!

Push, push, push the brake,
Make the car slow down,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Now we are in town!
