Concept Day
Pre-Readers Summer Reading 2021

We love working on shapes, counting, colors, and other concepts with young children. Pick a day and make it all about a concept. For example, with your preschooler, choose a letter and point out items that start with that letter all day. "Today's 'H' day! What can you find that starts with h? Your toy horse!" With a toddler, try a shape to find around the house or outside or counting groups of things. "Today is all about the number 5! Look, you have 5 carrots on your plate!"
