Slow and Steady, Get Me Ready.
Oberlander, June R.
Written by a retired kindergarten teacher with 25 years of experience, this paper presents the text for a video demonstration of at-home sensory activities to stimulate development in children from birth to age 5. The introduction notes recent research indicating that learning begins at birth, and explores the effect of early stimulation on babies' cognitive development, even for high-risk children. The remainder of the paper lists developmentally appropriate sensory activities that parents or caretakers can perform with infants and children, and suggests outcomes for these activities. The activities are organized by each year of the child's life, and include stacking and knocking down objects, dropping objects in a bottle, playing with water, and playing telephone games. (HTH)
