Special moments happen all the time. Trips to a new park, visits with family, or birthdays are a few examples. Stretch those moments! Ask your child to help you make a memory book using photos or drawings. Then write down the words they use to describe what’s happening in the pictures.

Writing down your child’s words connects real life, pictures, and language. They’re using thinking skills to remember details of that special moment. By connecting words and memories, you’re building language skills too.
