2. Sit at a table or on the floor across from your child.  Try and have the items you are playing with between you and your child.

3. Listen and watch what your child is doing.  Narrate and copy your child’s actions.  Take turns.

4. Continue to narrate as you go! Model new actions and add new materials. Keep the turns going.

5. When it’s time, clean up and move to another activity.
