This is a very useful article for helping children build vocabulary. I strongly believe in repetition with new words and concepts and a little at a time rather than loads of new words.
Also with my 2 year old I try (though slip up quite frequently – especially if it’s a word like “clock” and he misses the “l” 😂😂) to say “Good try!” And then repeat the word back to him in a sentence rather than say “No! That’s not how you say it!” . For him he responds better otherwise if I say “No! That’s not how you say it!” He insists that his way is the right way.
Yesterday’s rhyme was about going on an adventure so in keeping with that this week I’ll review some adventure books.
Where the Wild Things are – Maurice Sendak
Beautiful illustrations with a fantastic story about a boy called Maurice who is sent to bed without supper for being wild. He falls asleep and his room changes to a moonlit forest surrounded by an ocean. The forest is where the wild things live. Maurice becomes king and tames them. Such a classic book that can be read over and over. My own little wild thing loves this story!
