Ready, set, grow! This fantastic sensory experience provides a way to watch both the seeds of plants and your child’s language expand. This activity challenges your little one’s ability to sequence the steps of building a garden kit as well as to listen to the multi- step directions. When giving directions it is important to speak slowly and to wait until you have your child’s attention. At Little Speech Gems we often ask a child to repeat the direction back to us either verbally or by gesturing (pointing) so we know our child understands us.
This chalk is heavy-duty, the eggs are bigger than standard eggs which makes them easy to grip, the colors are vibrant, and they hold up well in the rain. When I think of summer, I always think of using chalk and creating masterpieces on the driveway. Chalk is a great way to expand imagination by creating elaborate stories right on the sidewalk. Get creative: Think of dinosaurs, pirates, and princesses.

This activity will target story comprehension, following directions, creation of a narrative, and increased attention. This book beautifully illustrates a child’s need to imagine. A couple of questions to ask are, “What do they want to be when they grow up?” and “What they want to put in their imagination box?” These questions facilitate imagination and creation of narrative.
At home facial? Yes, please! This is a perfect floral blend, hand mixed with Dead Sea salts. This facial steam with chamomile, lavender, rose, and calendula will soften your skin and open up your pores to allow the salts to deeply detox your skin and remineralize it. We think it’s going to be a staple of everyone’s self care routine.
A sunny garden hums, buzzes, creeps, and crawls with life. Every page has beautiful designs, lots of pages to flap, and consistent “wh” questions. As your little one lifts the “flaps” within a book, you can begin teaching prepositions (in, on, out, under). You can ask “Where is the lady bug?” and model the language “the lady bug is UNDER the leaf”. By raising your voice you are letting your child know the keyword to listen for and where to look.
