Baby Storytime Magic: Sneak Preview

Taking turns is fun to do.

First it’s me and then it’s you.

Back and forth and to and fro.

Your turn, my turn, here we go!

Literacy bit (Share this with caregivers!): “Babies and toddlers live very much in the present, so the concept of waiting for a turn is difficult for them! The back and forth nature of this bounce and the sign TAKE-TURNS both emphasize that the turn is coming. Use the sign TAKE-TURNS in everyday interactions with your child to describe and cue desired behavior.”
