During your car rides, use the time for conversations with your child. Oral language skills are built much more through interactions between people than by watching TV, working on a computer, or listening to a radio. So, strike up a conversation!
Playing with dolls and puppets is a great way to build oral language skills in a fun way. Your child can make these spoon people talk with each other, with you or with his toys. All of that conversation will contribute to a healthy use of oral language.
Create a “Mystery Box” to explore oral language skills, develop vocabulary and just have fun! This activity is easy to assemble and is bound to give you some laughs while developing oral language skills at the same time.
There’s a good chance your 3-year-old loves to talk and has gotten pretty good at it! Now you can work on strengthening his developing listening skills. This fun game will help your little one listen carefully and discover that words can break apart into smaller sound units.
