Buckle My Shoe – Mother Goose Club!
Mix up your child’s shoes and see if they can find matching pairs. Can your child tie their shoelaces yet? Today is a good day to learn how! If they've mastered that, have them show off their oral language skills by telling you what color a certain pair of shoes is, how many shoes with laces they have, etc. Using a variety of vocabulary words is great for building literacy!
