While you put away the clean dishes, hold each one up and ask your child to “Name that Dish” Plate! Bowl! Fork! And so on. Make it fun like a game show. You hold up the item, they tell you what it is, or you say what it is, then on to the next one!
See what your child is learning
Your child learns to make connections between words and objects when they can see it and hear them at the same time. These connections are important and develop talking and reading skills.
