Language Express Tip of the Week

Spring is coming! Here's a fun idea for preschoolers that is great for building language and literacy skills. Go for a walk and look for signs of spring. Dig under the snow if you have to! Take photos or draw pictures of what you see. When you get home ask your child what you should print on each picture. Say the letters as you print them. Put the pictures together as a book or poster that your child can show to others.
