By the time school starts, some kids will have heard 4 million more words than others! You can put your child on the “wordy” side by talking to your sons and daughters every day, as soon as they’re born. Describe the objects you see in the room, the colors and shapes baby encounters, the people coming to visit and how you know them. It doesn’t take much to build a vocabulary.
ask, tell, do
Ask your little one a question, tell them about their world, or do something together. There’s no limit to the number or type of sparks! you can create, all you need is a little imagination.
Free tip: Look your child in the eye when initiating a sparks! activity and you’ll engage them even further.
