Take turns with your child coming up with words that describe what they’re eating. If they have a carrot ask, “What does it look like” They might say, “orange” and you might say, “pointy” Keep the conversation going with questions like, “What does it feel, smell, and taste like?” or “What does it sound like when you eat it”
See what your child is learning
When you use lots of different words with your child, you help them build their vocabulary and connect words with what they mean. They’re also practicing tuning out distractions to focus on one thing. These are important skills for learning to read.
