When you’re out, find a safe spot to let your child explore. Get down to see the world from their point of view. Touch the dirt or the pavement. Do you notice a small creature crawling by? Talk together about what you see and refer back to it later that day.
See what your child is learning
Talking back and forth about what your child sees, hears, and feels helps them connect their world to words. It also adds new words to their vocabulary. When you bring it up again later and think back, you help them get better at remembering.
