Here are some ideas to help children develop their vocabularies and learn the meanings of new words. These activities are best carried out on a regular basis!
Practice taking about different words so that your child must describe the characteristics of an item or what it is used for. This helps children to remember words but is also a good way for your child to get their meaning across if they cannot remember a particular word.
A game may be having a pile of pictures and taking turns to guess what the picture shows. This can be more fun if the picture is stuck to the forehead of the person guessing what it is!
You could also use real items which you take turns to pick out of a bag without showing the other person.
