Interview the parent about the child’s observations of picture meanings.
Ask adults about the pictures the child notices in the home and community. Does the child explain the meaning of the pictures?
The child points to pictures and says what the pictures mean. For example, the child points to the picture of a bowl of cereal on the box and says, “Cheerios.”
Encourage adults to point out and explain the meaning of various pictures that are found in many places. Children feel pride when they can “read” signs.
