This book contains activities to help children develop language skills. Preschoolers learn best from hands-on experience so these \"quick tricks\" encourage children to talk and manipulate items to learn more about the qualities of language in an informal environment. Repetition of themes helps develop knowledge and problem-solving abilities and the activities in this book build upon each other to reinforce ideas. While designed for the classroom, this book includes follow-up activities for parents to work through with their children at home. Ages 5-7.
