My All about Me Book....

One thing I have learned while being a nanny is that safety is so important, not just for adults to know what to do in case of an emergency but for young children too. If you watch more then one child I know it may be difficult to get them to be safe. I used to watch two young boys ages 2 and 4, now the four year old was okay with listening, but his younger brother would not listen at all. I had to trane them to listen and here is how I managed to do it. We made an ALL ABOUT ME Book, now this book had everything. I had them tell me about themselves through pictures and very short simple sentences.
They not only had their name and age but their phone number as well as their address, I also included 911 as an emergency number. I feel that this type of information is important for them to know and they will need to know them when they begin going to school. I thought this was a good way to get them to practice writing, remember their address and phone number. You can leave pages on the side for them to draw their pictures. Don't forget to read them their book and then have them read their book to you.
