Practice Guides are easy to use guides developed for parents and practioners for implementing early literacy learning practices. The CELL parent practice guide for December focuses on taking turns with your toddler to improve his/her social skills. Most toddlers are starting to develop the ability to take part in real interactions with the people around them. But before children can take part in meaningful interactions, they need to learn skills such as how to take turns. Involve your child in taking turns with games, conversations, finger play, and sharing toys. Play with your toddler by taking turns with a toy, talking about what you are doing, and encouraging her to do the same. These activities will help develop the skills she needs to interact well with others.
