Is your child working on speech sounds? A great way to practice is while reading books. Head on over and subscribe to Speechy Musing’s blog to download a free list of picture books by speech sound.
Or, turn any book into an opportunity to practice. Grab a book, magazine, or newspaper, and try to find as many words as you can with your sounds.
Looking for a way to help support language development? Talk, talk, talk!
Looking for some conversation starters? Check out a museum, zoo, or book.
In response to COVID-19, many online resources have been made available for free to the public. I’ve shared some links to these on the sidebar under “Language Enrichment & Virtual Field Trips”
The San Diego Zoo offers Live Cam footage.
The conversations you have with your children while you take a virtual field trip will help enrich their language. Talk about what you’re seeing, ask questions, and have fun!
Get the list here.
