Some tips for practicing vocabulary at home-
- Talk to your child about what is going on around you. Talk about how things work, feelings and ideas. Listen when your child talks to you.
- Read to your child every day. Picture books are a good place to start ( they introduce a lot of " rare" words not used in every day conversation). Nonfiction books are good too, as way expanding a child's interest.
