Your child learns best through play, and will be more motivated if you make activities play based. Playing games, reading together, completing an art project, or getting outside to do some sports as a family are simple ways to have fun with your child, while also building critical skills that link to foundational academic skills, and help them to navigate social relationships. Developing your child’s speech and language skills is an important part of their academic success.
