Talk

Talk - Preschoolers

  • Read a book from start to finish, feeling the rhythm of the text and noticing the sequence between each action. Read it again but also talk about what is happening in the pictures. This way of sharing helps your child to develop vocabulary and narrative skills which is being able to describe things and events and to tell a story.
  • When children ask questions like, “What’s that?” Say the word, ask them to try to say the word. Then make sure to add information to what he/she says. 

Talk - Toddlers

  • Talk about the book. Say, “Where’s the kitty?” and “What sound does a kitty make?” Ask your toddler to point to the kitty in the picture.
  • While reading, children may ask questions like, “What’s that?” Say the word, ask them to try to say the word. Then make sure to add information to what he/she says. 
  • Young children like to examine objects. Talking about how the object feels, its colors, how heavy it is, sounds it makes and what it does all help children later when they try to match or sort items. Observation is the beginning of scientific thinking.

Talk - Babies

  • When you share a book with your baby and talk about the pictures, pause to give your baby time to babble back. It may take a while for your baby to respond. Being able to retell stories, narrative skills begin with babbling!
