As parents we are our children's first educator. The environment we provide in the home is a natural place to enhance the natural learning process. This article by Susan A. Miller gives fun ideas towards making the home a fun learning environment. She talks about the enjoyment her grandchild derived from shucking corn and how his sensory-motor skill development and imagination were encouraged by this shared project.

Creating a print rich environment helps develop reading and math skills. Provide a box with colorful junk mail envelopes and writing material for your child to use while you are doing your bills. This gives the child a learning opportunity and keeps them occupied while you are working. The kitchen is also a great area for discovery. While you are working in the kitchen give your child their own workstation to make scientific discoveries.
