• The child’s understanding broadens to include following two-step commands such as “Pick up your crayons and put them in the box.”

• He or she attaches meanings and activities to environmental sounds, such as attempting to answer a ringing phone or running to the door at the sound of a doorbell.

• The child begins to understand concepts and their opposites, including hot/cold, up/down, and stop/go.
