Building vocabulary with books is easy! You’ve probably noticed that books contain many more unusual words than everyday speech. Simply find books that have a few unfamiliar words. Explain the meaning of the words that your child doesn’t understand – the context and pictures may help.
Today we read and talked about many different kinds of fish and sea creatures. You can expand your child’s knowledge about the underwater world by looking for a book with photographs of unusual sea life. A trip to a nearby zoo or aquarium – or even a larger pet store -- would be fun, too.
