Start by asking your child to choose a word. Then say it together in different ways. Use a high voice or a low voice; a loud voice or a soft voice; speak slowly or speak fast. Have fun and keep it going back and forth! Take it to the next level by having a conversation or telling a story together while you play “Silly Speech.”

Playing with word sounds is fun, but those sounds are also the building blocks of your child’s language and reading skills. They’re also paying attention and thinking flexibly. These skills also help them to come up with new, creative ideas.
