Mimic stuff

Tonight, while reading a book, take turns reading with your child. First you read, and then your child reads the same passage. Set the pace and tone for your child to mimic. Change up your voice and rhythm and facial expressions and gestures. Then have them do a reading performance for you to imitate.

Evens and odds game

Designate the left side of a room as “Even” and the right side of the room as “Odd.” Yell out a number. If it’s even, your child has to jump to the left side. If it’s odd, they have to go right. More kids = more fun. Put an X on each side of the room. First one to tap the X wins a point. Play to ten. Whoever wins gets to call out numbers next! 🙂
