The activities need to fulfill a dual purpose — they need to be fun and engaging for the infant, and at the same time stimulate his 5 senses. This will thereby help him develop motor and problem-solving skills, language, and an emotional intelligence quotient, among other things. The LSRW technique should ideally be followed when teaching an infant. This includes – Listen. Speak. Read. Write.
Point to be Noted: Even though an infant might not respond immediately to the exercises mentioned below, they will learn to do so with time.
Place him on his stomach and place a toy right in front of his eyes, a little distance away. Now place your hands on the soles of his feet and give him a soft push. He will slowly start pushing against your hand and propelling himself forward towards the toy. Place the toy a little away and continue with this activity for sometime. Then let him reach the toy and spend time examining the same.
