Need to BUY SHOES or slippers for children without them? Trace their foot and take it with you. Works with gloves too!
NO TIME TO WRITE?- Have stamped postcard ready. Just jotting a quick “thinking of you” note goes a long way to bridge the gap between letters or phone calls. (Angela DiCicco)
For the pre-reading group- Using large print, LABEL items in your home such as oven, door, chair, etc. You’d be surprised how much they pick-up!
REWARD SYSTEM- Have a piece of paper with your child’s name on it somewhere prominent. Whenever they do something kind, or thoughtful, something without being told, etc. give them a sticker. You’d be amazed how far this attention goes to enforcing good behavior. Recognition is reward enough.
