I Can…!

Take turns demonstrating simple actions.  As you do each one, say simple sentences like these:

  • I can walk.
  • I can run.
  • I can jump.
  • I can clap.
  • I can hug you.
  • I can wave hi.
  • I can sit on a chair.
  • I can touch my nose.
  • I can turn a doorknob.
  • I can touch my toes.

Be as creative as you both like.

Dr. Sally Says…

Whenever your little one realizes he can do something, he or she will feel great!  The more your child realizes about all that he or she can do, the better your child will feel about him or herself.

NOTE: Great supplemental book: The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper. Yes, first that little engine thought he could, and then he did!
