Five Minutes to Spare - Pre-K

KATE SNOW, reporting:

Did you know you can help support your Pre-K child's development in just five minutes? Here's how: Anytime you walk together, count your steps! Early math skills start with counting, and by choosing the stairs over an elevator, or parking just a little farther away, you’ll also get extra exercise. If you're grocery shopping, let your child choose between two vegetables. Not only are you building healthy eating habits, but you'll also help develop their decision making skills. And when you help your child brush their teeth, have some fun in the mirror. Make a “sad” face, then a “happy” face. Talk to your child about the differences between the two and when you might feel sad or happy. Learning vocabulary for emotions can help your child develop empathy and self-awareness.
