In a calm moment together, take the time to look at your child’s face. Point to their nose and say, “your nose” Then point to your nose and say, “my nose” Respond to what they do. Do they point too? Do they smile or repeat your words or sounds? Try this with different parts of your face.
See what your child is learning
Children are more likely to learn when they’re in a relaxed and supportive environment. As you help your child learn new words, you’re also introducing them to the ideas of same and different. The ability to make these kinds of connections is at the heart of learning.
