Science made simple!
Remember these 5 steps to help build your child’s brain.
Even before babies can talk, they’re showing
you what they’re interested in. Look into their
eyes, or at what catches their eye, and begin
Powerful brain building moments are created
when you let children lead the way, and you
follow by responding to their words, sounds,
actions, and ideas.
It may not seem like it, but the sounds and
gestures young children make are their way
of communicating with you! So talk out loud
together and keep chatting as your children
grow to engage them in learning about the
world around them.
4. Take Turns
Back and forth interactions between you and
your children are one of the most important
ways to help their brains develop. So be sure
to take turns while you’re talking, playing, or
exploring with your children.
Make the moment last longer by building
on what your child says, or asking followup questions that expand your child’s
thinking and learning. When you stretch the
conversation with questions like, “What do
you think about that?” or “How does that
make you feel?” you’re stretching the brain
building moment too!
