Language is ultimately about connecting with others and making meaning of our world. Littlest ones acquire language while communicating about the people, things, and events surrounding them at any given moment.
- Give me feelings signs and words in “real time” as much as possible. Include the Language of Feelings as I am experiencing emotions, or as I see people around me experiencing them.
- As I grow, I will develop the ability to reflect on and converse about past experiences. We will also chat about future experiences. Until then, stay attuned to me in this moment so I can have lots of practice connecting feelings, facial expressions, body language, behaviors, and environmental clues to the Language of Feelings.
