Morning Message Tips and Tricks Part 1

Jenna is 20.5 months now, and we have been doing the Morning Message for two months.  In addition to overly exaggerating sounds as I write each word, I’m also doing some other tricks with this activity.  One is that I let Jenna hold the pen (with the cap on), and help her point to each word as we read the message.  This helps teach sound to word correspondence.  Another tip is that I go back and underline her name, because a child’s name is usually the first word they can identify.
