5 Building Blocks for Early Learning
Using the 5 Building Blocks (Talk, Read, Think, Do, and Play) helps parents teach their children in ways that seem natural and easy.
Every parent can use the Building Blocks to turn every day events into an opportunity to learn something new or reinforce something already known.
Encourage your child to think!
Science is everywhere! Most of our monthly themes are science based and we suggest a great place to learn about science in your neighborhood.
Take time to PLAY together!
Children need opportunities to try out new words, ideas, and new materials. Skills like taking turns, sharing, and losing a turn are all best learned with family and friends.
Do things together!
Traditions are Special! Having fun together as a family will build lifelong memories. S'mores around a campfire, cooking a special breakfast together, or going on a bike picnic all make it into the Family Memory Hall of Fame!
