Make the Most of Mealtime

March 27,2018

The dinner table is a great place to share stories that encourage language and literacy development. Of course, you might ask your child straightforward questions such as, “What was the best part about today? What was the worst part?”

Alternatively to foster creative development and imagination, you might ask, “If you could have a super power, what would it be and how would you use it?” Or you might ask your child to tell you a story about a dog who can fly.

Oral storytelling is a precursor to written stories and supports literacy development. So why not nourish your child’s mind as you nourish your child’s body? That is one way to make the most of mealtime.
