Milestones

Reading and writing

You might notice that:

  • I like to hold books and look at the pictures in them.
  • I can hold a chunky pen or crayon in my whole hand or in a fist grasp and explore the marks I can make.

Development clues:

  • Babies need to hear words and learn to use these.
  • Babies need to explore what happens when they use their hands and feet.

How you can help me learn:

  • Take me to the library
  • Let me hold the book as you share the story with me.
  • Talk to me about what is happening in the pictures or who you can see in the pictures.
  • Let me help you turn the pages of the book.
  • Give me chunky pencils / crayons / chalks to play with.
