Language Skills promote dialogue-driven play to understand new words and improve verbal skills. Ready, Set, Talk!
Repetition is key when teaching your child any new skill—especially new words! When playing with your child, explain what the toys do, how they work, and describe their physical attributes. Your infant, toddler, and preschooler will retain this information and learn to use the new language when playing with you—you may even hear them using these words a week later when they’re playing with a friend!
Whether your little one is babbling words only you can interpret or they’re stringing sentences together like a pro, children of all ages can improve on their language skills through play.
Through play, children put their communication skills to the test. They express what scenario they’re acting out, what rules they must follow, and what they need from their fellow playmates.
Playtime is also a great way to introduce new words to kids. For example, if your little one is playing in their toy kitchen, you can explain what a recipe is and take them through the steps of whipping up a pretend dish. In a play workshop, you can explain what each tool is and how they’re used. Your little one will have tons of fun all while adding new words to their ever-growing vocabulary!
