When shopping with your child, point out what you see. Use lots of different words to talk about the taste of different foods. Maybe you could say, “There are some juicy, sweet oranges” or “I bet those yellow lemons are sour” Follow their lead and talk about what they point and look at.
See what your child is learning
You’re building skills when you guide your child’s attention and make connections between words and what they mean. They are learning important skills like focus and self-control. When you respond to a word, sound, point, or even a look, you’re showing them what they “sa” is important.
