Children have a naturally inquisitive mind. Foster their curiosity with a walk through an autumn field or park to answer age-old “why” questions. As you walk with your child, you can encourage them to ask questions.
Kindergarteners often haven’t yet warmed up to the notion of book study, so fun kindergarten vocabulary activities like alphabet hunts and playing doctor are much better received than suggestions to crack open a textbook. Engaging kindergarten arts and crafts activities like having students collect 26 rocks and paint one for each letter of the alphabet keeps alphabet studies light and down to earth.
